Data dining disaster: Chili's announces breach in systems

"We sincerely apologize to those who may have been affected and assure you we are working diligently to resolve this incident", Brinker International said in a statement. We are working with third-party forensic experts to conduct a thorough investigation to determine the details of what happened.

They added that they believe the scope of the incident was limited to March and April 2018.

Debit and credit card numbers, in addition to the names of cardholders, were collected using malware, according to the company's disclosure.

The company learned on May 11 that some customer's payment card information was compromised at certain Chili's restaurants as a result of a "data incident" between March and April 2018.

"However, out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that you remain vigilant and consider taking one or more [.] steps to avoid identity theft, obtain additional information, and protect your personal information".

We immediately activated our response plan upon learning of this incident.

What Information Was Involved? .

Brinker also didn't provide an approximate number of affected customers but promised to publish more details as the investigation goes forward. It was lucky enough that Chili's doesn't ask for the social security number or date of birth when they sell you a burger to their customers. Therefore, this personal information was not compromised. This website will be updated when this information becomes available.
