Possible Chick-fil-A Data Breach Compromises At Least 9,000 Sets of Credit Card Data

250px-PC_Chick-Fil-A_2012-08-01While the world was celebrating the arrival of 2015, hackers eyed a new data breach target: Restaurant chain Chick-fil-A. Jamie Condliffe at Gizmodo reports:

Chick-Fil-A has admitted that it’s “received reports of potential unusual activity involving payment cards used at a few of our restaurants.” Further reports suggest that the fast food chain is the common link in the loss of 9,000 sets of card details.

Chick-Fil-A learned on December 19th that suspicious payment activities were happening at some of its outlets, and its since been working with authorities to find out what’s happening. Some digging by Brian Krebs reveals that “nearly 9,000 customer cards [were] listed in that alert, and that the only common point-of-purchase were Chick-fil-A locations.”

It turns out that the size of this breach is larger than the Target data breach.  Details are still emerging–follow us on Twitter to stay current.
