Wawa announces data breach at ‘potentially all’ locations

The CEO of Wawa is apologizing after the convenience store chain became a center of a massive data breach.

According to an open letter from Wawa CEO Chris Gheysens, the company discovered malware on Wawa’s payment processing servers between December 10 and 12 of 2019. Gheysens said in the letter that the same malware affected customer payment card information used “at potentially all Wawa locations beginning March 4, 2019 and until it was contained.”

The malware accessed customers’ payment card information, including credit and debit card numbers, expiration dates and cardholder names at potentially inside the store and at the self-serve pumps, according to Wawa.
