If you bought a ticket for the Full House lottery, your credit card could be compromised. The lottery has identified a breach on its website that originated from late February.
The lottery has notified all 23,000 affected credit customers by email.
This breach also affects 5,300 people who purchased tickets at show homes, but their financial information was not compromised.
The hack happened on February 23rd, one day after identifying a previous credit card breach.
“No question we have a sophisticated and persistent group that are hacking us. Because of that, we’ve moved everything to a different server and different company,” said Lottery Manager Frank Calder.
Calder adds that a lot of early indications point to this breach being conducted internationally.
While everyone has been notified, the lottery is still advising people to go to their financial institutions.
Now that the site has been moved to a different server, Calder says that tickets are once again available for purchase. (BM)
