NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Customers who have made food and merchandise purchases at Madison Square Garden and other properties owned by the company could have had personal information stolen in a data breech.
The arena company says the payment processing system was hacked into between November of 2015 and October of this year.
The data breach includes cardholder names, credit card numbers and expiration dates.
In a statement to Fox 5 News the company says: "MSG has identified and addressed a payment card issue resulting from external unauthorized access to MSG's payment processing system at five of its properties. After learning of a transaction pattern indicating a potential data security concern, MSG immediately initiated an investigation and engaged leading computer security firms to examine its network, fix the issue and implement enhanced security measures. The independent forensic investigation shows that no further cards were accessed after the time when signs of unauthorized access were identified. Customers may use their cards with confidence at MSG venues. The company takes seriously the protection of customer information and is in the process of notifying customers to provide them with information on how they can protect themselves."
