Payment Processing Systems of Affinity Gaming Casino Operator Breached Again

The Affinity Gaming casino operator has had its credit and debit card payment processing systems breached for a second time in six months, according to a press release.

 “Affinity has implemented controls to secure the credit card processing environment,” the press release said. “We currently have no evidence to indicate that credit card data is being stolen.”

The law enforcement and gaming regulators were notified as Affinity Gaming promised to “fully cooperate with them in response to this matter.”

An update was made yesterday in which the casino operator said that “no credit card data was stolen after late afternoon April 28, 2014.” The original announcement was made on April 28.

Also the investigation is ongoing and a toll-free enquiry line for customer assistance was established.

The casino operator’s credit and debit card payment systems were first hacked in December of last year and customer financial information was allegedly abused.
