Attention Aldi Shoppers - Cybercrooks stealing credit card info.

Have you visited an Aldi in North Carolina?  Especially in Charlotte or Raleigh?

Or, how about those of you in CT, GA, IL, IN, MD, NJ, NY, PA, SC or VA?

Customers in these 11 states had their payment card data at risk as cybercrooks gained access to Aldi to install bogus point of sale terminals.

The bogus terminals drank the credit card data faster than you can chug sweet tea at a bar-b-q.
They pulled name, account number and pin.

By the way, this went on from June 1, 2010 - August 31, 2010.
