Musgrave confirm cyber attack 

CORK-based food wholesaler Musgrave has been the victim of a cybercrime attack.

The company confirmed today that a cybercrime attack occurred that impacted its network and SuperValu, Centra and Daybreak stores.

In a statement released today, the company said they are now engaged in an ongoing investigation of the incident with An Garda Síochána and has notified the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner of the incident.

A statement from the company said:

“Musgrave detected that malicious software was attempting to extract debit and credit card numbers and expiry dates, but not the cardholder name, PIN number or CCV number.

"While there is no evidence that any data has been stolen at this point, Musgrave is advising any concerned shoppers to review activity on their statements as a precautionary measure.” 

Musgrave’s cyber breach response experts have installed advanced technical fixes and continue to actively manage and monitor the situation.

The company went on to stress the importance of security to Musgrave and apologised to all its customers.

“The protection of information is an absolute priority for Musgrave, with a range of security solutions including threat-monitoring, anti-virus software, firewall and penetration testing deployed.

“The company aims to ensure that security standards are maintained at the highest levels and apologises to its customers for this issue.”
