BevMo, the alcohol retailer revealed to the office of the California Attorney General that its website was breached, compromising the credit card information of about 15,000 users.

BevMo, which apart from selling via e-commerce also functions stores situated throughout Arizona, California, and Washington state, news report followed that NCR erased the code, which seized the data for placed orders between August 2 and September 26, the current year.
A third-party forensics company not recognized the assistance of BevMo with the inquiry. The said company stated that it warned the law enforcement agency and credit card firms.
The website of the retailer is marked as lacking security, and includes no awareness to customers of that their data might have been compromised.
