Arby’s Confirms Payments System Breach


Arby’s Restaurant Group acknowledged it recently cleaned malicious software from the payment systems of some of its nationwide fast-food chain.

The company was notified of the breach mid-January, but kept it quiet while it worked with law enforcement agencies and security experts to get rid of the malware, an Arby’s spokesperson told KrebsonSecurity. The company didn’t disclose how many customers may have had credit and debit card numbers compromised. 

The malware affected some of the corporate-owned locations, which make up about one-third of the 3,330 Arby’s locations across the country.
