37 Restaurant Locations Across the South Reportedly Affected
Based on an investigation led by cyber security firm Kroll Cyber Security, LLC, Best American Hospitality Corp. announced that 37 Shoney’s restaurant locations were potentially subject to a data breach that was initiated on December 7, 2016 and lasted until March 6, 2017. According to Best American Hospitality Corp., Kroll’s findings indicate that malware was remotely installed on point-of-sale equipment used to process credit, debit and other payment cards used at some of the restaurants. The malware reportedly searched for various cardholder information, including name, card number, expiration date and internal verification code.
