Data breach at Wendy’s fast food restaurants

Fast food giant Wendy’s acknowledged that cyber criminals gained access to some customers’ payment card information at over 1,000 franchise locations in the U.S., via a widespread point-of-sale data breach that began in late fall 2015 and continued through June 2016.

In a statement, the company said that compromised customer information includes cardholders’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, the cardholder verification value and service code. Wendy’s published a list of the potentially affected restaurant locations and timeframes here.
