King Kullen says its computer system hacked, affecting electronic payments

Sep 24, 2021

Updated September 24, 2021 11:15 AM King Kullen’s computer systems were hacked, which affected the grocer’s ability to accept electronic payments, according to the company’s president. On Sept. 16, the Hauppauge-based grocery chain experienced an "unauthorized entry into our corporate computer systems, causing a disruption in certain functions at both store and headquarter locations," Joseph W. Brown, King’s Kullen’s president and chief operating officer, said in a statement Friday. The breach affected the chain’s ability to process debit and some credit card payments, he said. It also affected the processing of payments made by Electronic Benefits Transfer, or EBT, which allows participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly the food stamp program, to pay for food with special debit cards. King Kullen’s computer systems are now functional, Brown said, but he did not say when the problem was addressed. "It is important to note that King Kullen does not store any sensitive information on customer credit or debit activity," Brown said in the statement. A forensic examination showed that the company’s employee database had not been compromised. Newsday has contacted King Kullen for more information on the hacking, including the source of the breach.
