Arby’s Data Breach Exposes More Than 335K Card Numbers
Thursday, February 16, 2017 6:50 AM

Atlanta-based Arby’s restaurants has acknowledged a data breach involving a number of its corporate-owned locations, reports Krebs On Security. The breach is estimated to have occurred between Oct. 25, 2016, and Jan. 19.

According to reports, the breach involved malware placed on payment systems only at corporate locations, which are approximately one-third of the company’s more than 3,330 locations. An Arby’s official says not all of the corporate locations were affected, but more than 355,000 card numbers may have been exposed.

CUNA and Cornerstone are strong advocates for data breach legislation that includes a strong, scalable security standard for merchants, as well as a notification standard in the event of a breach.

Credit unions that have questions can email to communicate with outside counsel who are working with CUNA to address merchant data breaches.
