Advocate staff report

Albertson’s stores in Louisiana have apparently escaped hackers’ recent efforts to steal credit- and debit-card information from the supermarket chain, according to parent company AB Acquisition LLC.

But Albertson’s customers in Southern California, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming and Southern Utah were among those who were affected by the cyber attack.

However, AB Acquisition said it has not determined that any cardholder data was stolen, and the company has no evidence that the information has been misused.

Mark Bates, senior vice president and chief information officer at AB Acquisition, said as soon as the company learned of the attack, it began working with its IT services provider, SuperValu, to figure out what happened.

“It’s important to note that there is no evidence at this point that consumer data has been misused,” Bates said.
