Hackers Create Chaos for Snow Creek Ski Resort

Scott Canon of The Kansas City Star reports that the Snow Creek ski resort in Weston, Mo. and many of its credit card customers appear to be victims of an attack by Internet hackers that first came to light on the morning of February 18.
By midday Friday the Platte County outfit had cut its on-site credit card processing system from the Internet and was warning customers to keep close track of their bills.
Soon word was coming from credit card processing companies, banks and the Secret Service that a large number of dubious credit card transactions appeared to be linked to customers who had done business at Snow Creek.
“The Secret Service thinks we got hacked in that nanosecond before the information is encrypted,” says Dave Grenier, Snow Creek’s general manager. “It’s still not clear what happened.”
