BobSullivan.net: Hackers Continue Stealing From Starbucks App Users, Nearly a Year Later; Linked Credit, Debit Cards at Risk
Starbucks’ response to Bob Sullivan’s report:
- Occasionally, we find unauthorized activity connected to a customer’s online account. This type of activity is not caused by a breach or hack of our website or apps or card, but rather when criminals obtain reused names and passwords from other sites and attempt to apply that information to Starbucks.
- This is an industry wide challenge, though is not and has never been a widespread or systemic situation for Starbucks.
- Over the last year, our security and fraud prevention improvements have reduced fraudulent activity in our business to a level significantly below industry average; a number that continues to decline as we implement additional measures.
- In fact, we see only a tiny fraction of one percent of our account holders impacted. In any case, customers are not responsible for charges or transfers they did not make.
