Fast-food chain Wendy’s disclosed it was a victim of a point-of-sale system attack that installed malware on PoS computers affecting 300 franchise restaurants. The disclosure was part the company’s first quarter 2016 SEC filings on Wednesday and is the most complete account to date of a 2015 data breach.
“In January, we began to investigate unusual payment card activity at our restaurants, and today we went a lot further,” said Bob Bertini, Wendy’s spokesperson in an interview with Threatpost. “We are sharing much more about the breach that involved less than 300 franchise restaurants.”
