PulseTV Security Incident – PulseTV’s Website Identified As A Common Point Of Purchase For Unauthorized Credit Card Transactions
PulseTV’s data breach notification letter reported a recent data security incident discovered on December 2, 2021 involving some information used to process online orders from the Company’s website, www.pulsetv.com.
According to PulseTV’s breach notification letter:
[o]n November 18, 2021, [PulseTV’s] investigator learned that the website had been identified as a common point of purchase for a number of unauthorized credit card transactions for MasterCard. Based upon communications with the card brands, it is believed that only customers who purchased products on the website with a credit card between November 1, 2019 and August 31, 2021 may have been affected. The investigation was unable to verify that the website was the cause of the unauthorized transactions. However, in an abundance of caution, PulseTV is notifying customers . . . who purchased products on [PulseTV’s] website during that time period so that they can take steps to protect and secure their credit card information.
According to PulseTV’s notification letter, the compromised information, “may have included . . . name, address, email address, payment card number, expiration date, and card security code (CVV) provided during checkout.”
