Chili's reports data breach

By ,

Chili’s customers from March and April may be affected by a data breach that exposed their debit and credit card information, the restaurant’s parent company Brinker International said.

The company believes malware was used to gather payment card numbers and cardholder names from in-house point of sale systems. Information such as social security number, date of birth, and federal or state identification numbers were not compromised.

"Law enforcement has been notified of this incident and we will continue to fully cooperate," Brinker International said. “We are working to provide fraud resolution and credit monitoring services for those guests who may have been impacted.”

It wasn’t immediate clear how many Chili’s locations were affected, nor if Chili’s 24 New Jersey locations were affected. Brinker International recommends that Chili’s customers keep an eye on their bank and credit card statements for fraudulent items.
