Point-of-sale data breaches have now reached the cloud

PCWorld 

The latest in a string of hacks against retail point-of-sale systems has hit the operator of a cloud-based service with about 38,000 business clients. Montreal-based Lightspeed reported the breach on Thursday and said it affected a system that retailers can use from tablets, smartphones and other devices. The incident occurs as a growing number of retailers and hotels have been targeted by hackers, who typically install malware into the point-of-sale systems to steal credit card numbers. The breach at Lightspeed targeted a central database that stores client information, the company said. The incident exposed data related to sales, products, and encrypted passwords that clients use to get on Lightspeed's system.
