Schnucks enhances computer network security

Supermarket chain was victim of cyberattack in March

ST. LOUIS — Schnuck Markets is enhancing the security of its computer network, the Midwestern supermarket chain said Monday.

Schnucks said the upgrades would not affect the operation of its stores, but that people sending emails to the company might experience delays.

The enhancement comes about two months after a cyberattack announced at the end of March in which the company's payment card system was compromised. The company reported finding computer codes that captured the magnetic stripe data on the backs of credit and debit cards.
