Hundreds of Thousands of Card Users Reportedly Affected by Breach
In a written statement to KrebsOnSecurity, Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. told the website that it was prompted to initiate an investigation of its payment card systems after a breach involving malware was discovered inside the company’s corporate-owned stores. According to the report, the breach only affects corporate-owned stores, which account for roughly 1,000 stores nationwide. However, those affected by the breach may not know if they used their card at a corporate-owned or franchise-owned location until more information is released.
News regarding a possible breach was first issued by PSCU, an organization that serves hundreds of credit unions across the United States. Alerts made by PSCU and sent to the organization’s member banks stated that a breach may have compromised 355,000 credit and debit cards issued by those banks. Although Arby’s did not say how long the malware was thought to have infected their corporate systems, PSCU’s notice has estimated that the breach potentially occurred between October 25, 2016 and January 19, 2017, the website reported.
