Security Breach At Dairy Queen Payment Systems

Security Breach At Diary Queen

US based Fast food restaurant dairy queen has been infected by malwares at some of their stores. The US Secret Service alerted the company about this security breach.

The company said, "Customer data at a limited number of stores may be at risk. In addition to communicating with potentially affected franchised locations, credit card processors and credit card companies to gather relevant information, we immediately began cooperating with the authorities investigating this particular Malware. We continue to communicate with our franchisees and service providers regarding steps necessary to protect customer data and minimize any impact to our customers."

But there is no information about the number of stores infected or the number of customers whose data has been exposed. And the misuse of stolen data is not yet reported.

Dairy Queen Spokesman Dean Peters said franchisees, who operate most of Dairy Queen's 6,300 stores, are not required to report fraud to headquarters.

Security blogger Brian Krebs wrote that a fraud prevention specialist at a Midwestern credit union said more than 50 customers who recently made purchases at a Dairy Queen reported credit card fraud.
