Chili’s Pwned…. Unknown Number Of Debit & Credit Cards Exposed

The parent company of the restaurant chain known as Chili’s has announced that the restaurant had been hit by a data breach that left an unknown number of customer debit and credit card numbers exposed to hackers. The firm said that the hack occurred between March and April and involved malware but little else has been revealed. Since the company doesn’t collect any other data, there’s little chance that SSN’s and the like are floating around out there. But this is clearly not good. The company suggests that you monitor your bank cards to ensure that no fraud takes place and the company has said that it will post updates on their website.

Clearly this isn’t a trivial hack and hopefully this sends a message that companies have to do a much better job of protecting themselves from pwnage.
