If you have eaten at Chili’s restaurants within the past two months, then you might want to check your credit report and card statements.
Chili’s parent company, Brinker International, announced over the weekend that customers’ payment information may have been exposed in a malware attack.
Brinker did not disclose how many customers were affected or how hackers gained unauthorized access to its systems.
“While the investigation is still ongoing, we believe that malware was used to gather payment card information, including credit or debit card numbers and cardholder names, from our payment-related systems for in-restaurant purchases at certain Chili’s restaurants,” the Dallas-based company said in a statement Saturday.
Brinker said Chili’s does not collect Social Security numbers, dates of birth or state identification numbers full date of birth, so that data was not compromised.
