Arby’s Had A Massive Breach, So Check Your Credit Cards

If you’ve been to Arby’s lately, you might want to check your credit or debit card information.

Arby’s is investigating a breach that could have affected 355,000 customers at hundreds of its stores, according to Krebs on Security.

There seemed to be malware spotted in Arby’s payment systems, but it only affected the corporate-owned restaurants, and not independently-owned franchises.

Although they didn’t even know about the breach until mid-January, they said they were able to contain it and get rid of the malware.

There were rumors about the breach going around, as Public Service Credit Union, the largest credit union in the US, received an alert that more than 355,000 Visas and MasterCards were compromised.

Krebs on Security spoke to an Arby’s spokesperson, who said:

“Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (ARG) was recently provided with information that prompted it to launch an investigation of its payment card systems. Upon learning of the incident, ARG immediately notified law enforcement and enlisted the expertise of leading security experts, including Mandiant.”

Arby’s declined to comment on how long the malware was in the system, but PSCU said it could have been between October 25, 2016 to January 19, 2017.

There are thousands of Arby’s in the US and it’s hard to tell which are corporate or franchise-owned, but if you’ve eaten there in the last three months, you should just make sure everything’s square with your payment cards.

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.

Burger King’s Twitter Account Got Hacked — Best President’s Day Morning, Ever


For everyone who’s been sleeping in on this glorious holiday morning, here’s what you missed. Around 9 AM Pacific Time, hacker group Anonymous found its way into the Burger King twitter account. And then Burger King got sold to McDonald’s, hired a group of super-ratchets as its PR team and revealed its newest product: BK Bath Salts. You know what they say: it’s on the internet, so it must be true.

Unfortunately, after about an hour of marvelous wtf*ckery, the twitter account has finally been suspended. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Plus, 30k new followers — who will probably have to wait ages for anything like this to happen again, sadsauce.

But in case you didn’t get to it in time yourself , check out some of the “Best-Of-BK-Anonymous-Hacks” (and some of the best responses to it), below:






And of course, you can’t have a good hacking without an equally awesome fan response:
