Eat at Chipotle in March or April? Your Credit Card Information May Have Leaked
You love Chipotle. You dream of their chips and guac. You don't dream of your credit card information being stolen because you indulged at the Mexican Grill.
...but very well may have happened to you. According to Channel 2, Chipotle's across the nation were involved in a data breach that may have exposed their customer's financial information. Malware software was found on multiple point-of-sale devices that would allow hackers to get information from the magnetic stripe when it was ran through the device. That information could include the customer's name, card number, expiration date and internal verification code.
The incident took place between March 24 - April 18, 2017 but the time frame during which certain locations were affect varied. The restaurants in the Treasure Valley and dates they were affected are listed below.
