Credit Card Numbers Stolen from Taphouse

EUGENE, Ore. — A brand new business in downtown Eugene is already dealing with a security breach by hackers.

The First National Taphouse recently posted on its Facebook page about customer and employee credit cards being compromised.

Managers say a virus got into their system and was able to pull the information. Even encrypted data wasn’t safe. They have since completely replaced the system. Nearby businesses hope this hiccup won’t change the progress downtown.

“I think it’s something that all businesses go through, especially when running new systems and opening new businesses. But absolutely, I hope it doesn’t deter people from shopping downtown. There are so many new exciting things that are happening. It’s really a great place to be,” said Christina San Filippo, Urban Lumber Company Owner.

The taphouse suggests shops strengthen their security and encourage customers to keep an eye on their credit statements for unauthorized transactions.

    well if you got a computer virus, then quit using the company computer to surf the internet and look at porn.

    unacceptable and unprofessional to say the least.

    Just one more reason why I stay out of businesses like that….nothing but trouble and all the wrong kinds of people go in these places.
