Hackers Gain Access to Vol Magic Wash Customer Payment Information

Credit card and debit card information for customers of Vol Magic Wash in Sevierville and Jefferson City may be affected by a data breach of the company’s credit card payment system.

Vol Magic Wash, LLC says it was informed on April 3, 2017 that the point-of-sale system, which is operated by DRB Systems of Akron, OH, experienced an intrusion between the dates of February 6, 2017 and February 23, 2017. Vol Magic Wash used this point-of-sale system under a licensing agreement with DRB Systems.

DRB Systems advised the company that the intruder placed malware on their point-of-sale system, and by doing so gained access to customers’ payment card data, including the cardholder’s first and last name, payment card number, and security code.

If you used a payment card at either Vol Magic Wash in Sevierville or Jefferson City, Tenn. between the dates of February 6, 2017 and February 23, 2017, your payment card information may be at risk.

“Because we do not maintain personal customer credit card information, we are unable to determine contact information for each customer whose information may be at risk, therefore we are notifying our customers of this risk in this Substitute Notice,” the company said in a release.

Vol Magic Wash, LLC has been assured by DRB Systems that the malware has been removed and that they are actively monitoring the platform to safeguard personal information.

DRB Systems is offering one year of complimentary credit monitoring through Kroll to help alleviate any concerns affected customers may have.
