The latest news from Silicon Valley is coming in the form of a hack of the Starbucks pay site, and the company is offering to help restore the system.
According to the company, the attack happened this morning, and it was not due to an issue with the site itself, but rather a “malicious software attack.”
It was a very sophisticated attack, and “the system’s integrity has been compromised,” a Starbucks spokesperson told ABC News.
According, the company also said the hack occurred “on a system hosted by a third-party.”
Starbucks has released a patch that addresses the issue, but it’s not available yet.
The company has not said how the hack affected its payment systems, or what changes will be made in the future.
A similar attack earlier this year compromised the Paypal and Google Pay systems.
A month later, Starbucks also suffered a hack similar to the one in the latest attack, which compromised its systems and impacted the systems of other companies, including PayPal.
Starbucks told ABC that it was aware of the attack and that it is investigating.
The site says it will have a full rollout of patches soon.ABC News’ Scott Kacsmar contributed to this report.
