A spokesman from MasterCard says it is investigating reports of a potential breach at the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Seth Eisen says the breach is not with MasterCard’s systems.

KrebsOnSecurity.com was the first to report the possible breach, which it says involved online payments from Aug. 2, 2013, to Jan. 31, 2014.

A DMV spokesman said the agency would issue a statement later Saturday.

Eisen says MasterCard has sent out alerts to member banks. He advises consumers to review their accounts and contact their card issuer for assistance.
