Payment system provider Verifone suffered an attack by hackers in January that affected gas stations.

Verifone is investigating a hacker attack it suffered in January that targeted dozens of payment terminals at gas stations, according to Consumerist.

The payment company assured the damages caused by the attack were limited and that it has been fully contained. Hackers could have potentially accessed payment card data, as well as software code related to the security of Verifone devices.

"According to third-party forensic teams, this cyber attempt was limited to approximately two dozen U.S. gas station convenience stores and occurred over a short time period," Verifone spokesman Andy Payment told Information Security Media Group.

After the initial investigation of the results Verifone has stated that its payment terminals remain secure and fully operational.
