Financial Data Stolen from B&G Foods North America

B&G Foods North America has started to warn customers by e-mail this week that a Nov. 16 attack may have compromised their financial data, according to Softpedia.

The attack occurred on the web site of the company’s Maple Grove Farms brand. The company issued a letter warning all customers that they may have lost personal and financial information. Beside credit card numbers, the customers may have had phone numbers, names or home addresses accessed.

The company assured customers in a customer letter that it took the web site offline and enhanced security measures immediately after the attack. It also advised customers to contact their banks and cancel their credit cards and request a new one.
