Hackers evaded security systems for a year-and-a-half at a hosting center that processed payment cards for Goodwill Industries, using the same type of malware that struck Target and other major retailers to steal card data, according to the charity’s software vendor. In its first public statement since being identified by Goodwill as its technology partner, CK Systems of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, said two other customers were also affected by the unauthorized access, though it didn’t name them.
