So Dairy Queen Got Nationally Hacked


Dairy Queen has been the target of the latest hack. The fast food chain announced Thursday that 4oo of their stores have become victims to a security breach. Anyone eat at DQ lately?

The chain had discovered that malware called Backoff was responsible for the recent breach in security. Among the information compromised in the hack were customer names, and debit and credit card numbers and expiration dates for purchases between August and October 2014.

Stores affected by the security breach can be found here. Overall, this accounts for approximately 9 percent of Dairy Queen’s total 4,500 locations. For anyone affected by the incident, Dairy Queen is offering “free identity repair services” for an entire year.

A few weeks back, popular sandwich chain Jimmy Johns was also part of a security attack.

Apparently nothing is safe anymore.
