Credit and debit cards used at Vacationland Vendors arcade games in Wisconsin Dells may be affected by a data breach. Vacationland Vendors, Inc., a supplier of arcade equipment and vending machines to businesses, announced Monday that up to 40,000 cards used its Wisconsin Dells and Sevierville, Tenn., arcades may have been exposed, according to a business press release. The company discovered that a hacker gained unauthorized access to its card processing systems at Wilderness Waterpark Resort in the Dells and Wilderness at the Smokies in Sevierville , said Bill Bray, spokesperson for the Wisconsin Dells-based Vacationland Vendors. Resort operations and systems, including reservations, restaurants and shops, were not included; the breach affected only arcade systems.
