SACRAMENTO (AP) — A spokesman from MasterCard says it is investigating reports of a potential breach at the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
Seth Eisen says the breach is not with MasterCard’s systems.
KrebsOnSecurity.com was the first to report the possible breach, which it says involved online payments from Aug. 2, 2013, to Jan. 31, 2014.
Armando Botello, DMV spokesman, said that there is no evidence at this time about a direct breach of the organization’s computer system. Still, Botello noted that an investigation into the possible breach has been opened.
“The department has implemented heightened monitoring of all DMV website traffic and credit card transactions. We will immediately notify any affected DMV customers as quickly as possible if we find any issue,” Botello said in a statement.
Eisen says MasterCard has sent out alerts to member banks. He advises consumers to review their accounts and contact their card issuer for assistance.
