Pimark in Boston’s “downtown crossing”

Primark has reported that its Boston store, located in Downtown Crossing at 10 Summer Street, was affected by a data breach running from July to October of 2016. On or about October 17, 2016, Primark found out that “skimmers” had been secretly installed in their credit card machines. They failed to make this discovery for approximately four months.

As a result, it is believed that cybercriminals may have intercepted tens of thousands of consumers’ credit card numbers and financial data. Primark’s public notification about their data breach is here.
