A group of restaurants is demanding millions of dollars in damages from two
companies accused of selling point-of-sale terminals that exposed customer data
to criminal hackers.
In a complaint filed in Louisiana state court, the restaurants claim the
Aloha POS software manufactured by Georgia-based Radiant Systems failed to
comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. The lawsuit also
names Louisiana-based Computer World, the exclusive provider of the Aloha POS
software in the south central part of that state.
