Possible Debit & Credit Card Breach at Zaxby’s

Possible Debit & Credit Card Breach at Zaxby’s

Zaxby's, the fast food chicken chain, is warning customers throughout the Southeast that their credit and debit card information may have been hacked.

The security breach affects over 100 stores throughout ten states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Virginia.

In a statement released Friday, the chain said that during an investigation, it "identified some suspicious malware files on the licensees' computer systems at several Zaxby's locations. Because those malware files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers, Zaxby's Franchising, Inc. informed appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity."

Zaxby's also alerted the major credit reporting agencies--Experian, Equifax and TransUnion--about the incident. The chain is encouraging their customers who have dined in these locations to monitor their financial accounts for any unauthorized activity and to check their credit scores with these credit reporting agencies.
