The UPS Store, Inc., announced Wednesday that 51 of its 4,470 franchised centers nationwide were affected by malware that could lead to the theft of personal information. Three of the locations were in New Jersey, The UPS Store said.

The affected locations included those at:

  • 1385 Highway 35, Middletown
  • 1409 Marlton Pike, Route 70 East, Suite 168, Cherry Hill
  • 201 Strykers Road, Suite 19, Lopatcong

The malware was found to have been present at those sites between April 29 and August 11. The UPS Store said in a statement that customers who used a credit or debit card may have been exposed, based on the findings of The UPS Store and a hired IT security firm. Vulnerable information includes names, addresses, email addresses and payment card information.

"I understand this type of incident can be disruptive and cause frustration,” Tim Davis, president of The UPS Store, said in a prepared statement. “I apologize for any anxiety this may have caused our customers. At The UPS Store the trust of our customers is of utmost importance. As soon as we became aware of the potential malware intrusion, we deployed extensive resources to quickly address and eliminate this issue. Our customers can be assured that we have identified and fully contained the incident."

The UPS Store said it is providing an information website, identity protection and credit monitoring to anyone who may have been affected. Click here for more information.
