Michigan State University is the latest victim of e-skimming. MSU disclosed that roughly 2,600 users of its online store had credit cards and other personal information stolen in the attack. MSU stated, “An unauthorized party gained access to Michigan State University’s online store, shop.msu.edu, and placed malicious code to expose shoppers’ credit card numbers between Oct. 19, 2019, and June 26, 2020.” Michigan State is working with law enforcement as part of the investigation. Daniel Ayala, the MSU Chief Information Security Officer, said, “Once the university was notified, an initial investigation determined the exposed information included names, addresses, and credit card numbers of about 2,600 customers.” The university will be reaching out to all potentially affected users and offering free credit monitoring and identity protection.
