Arby’s Data Breach Affects More Than 350,000 Credit Card Accounts
If you ate at Arby's recently, you might want to check your credit card statement a little more closely. The company has announced that credit card data for more than 355,000 customers was included in a security breach that was accessed via malware on cash registers.
At this point, date range for potential hacking is October 25, 2016 to January 19, 2017. At this time and due to the breaking nature of this news, it's unclear as to how many of Arby's 1,000 corporate-owned locations were affected.
Credit industry observers are comparing this credit data breach to those that occurred at Target and Wendy's recently. They strongly suggest that customers who used their cards at the fast food chain check their monthly statements for malicious activity.
