Members accounts hacked at CU in Alabama
TALLADEGA, Ala. (1/31/12)--First Educators CU, based in Hoover, Ala., is issuing several members new cards after someone accessed several accounts at its Tallageda and Anniston branches.

The hacking was discovered by a card servicer before any stolen information could be used for fraudulent purposes, according to local media (DailyHome.com Jan. 28).

No members lost funds in the breach.  The $115.7 million asset credit union notified members whose accounts were compromised with a courtesy call and is sending follow up letters, the credit union told The Daily Home.

It was not known how the hacking occurred or how many accounts were involved.
