If you want to use a credit or debit card at College of Brockport dining halls, forget it. Until the end of the school term, it’s mostly cash only due to a security breach which affected hundreds of credit and debit cards from students, staff and faculty.
The school has identified the source of the hack and authorities are investigating.
Students can still use dining plans and Easy Money, the school’s debit spending account, at dining halls since those weren’t affected by the breach.
“People are getting hundreds of dollars taken out of their accounts off of their credit cards,” said one student, while another added: “I know a couple of people who were affected and their cards were used in other states too.”
