Three UPS stores in the state of North Carolina make the list of those which UPS said were targeted by malware, releasing customer credit or debit card information.

A spokeswoman for UPS tells reporters 51 stores nationwide were hacked.

Transactions between January 20th and August 11th of this year could have been part of the hack. UPS reports nearly 100,000 transactions were effected with card numbers, postal and email addresses released.

According to a list of the stores affected , only three were in the state of North Carolina:
- Matthews on Matthews Township Parkway
- Spindale on US Highway 74A Bypass
- Durham on Fayetteville Road, Suite 120

On Wednesday, the United Parcel Service Inc. said it was among U.S. retailers who got a government bulletin about the malware on July 31st.

For now, the malware has not been identified by anti-virus software.

A UPS spokeswoman said the company has not been made aware of any fraud as a result of the hack.
