Cybercriminals have been extremely active lately. Nearly 143 million Americans are still dealing with Equifax’s data breach, which means you’re most likely impacted. If so, click here to find out what you need to do with your Social Security number immediately.

Even though the Equifax breach was so substantial, we can’t take our eye off the ball and stop paying attention to other attacks. We’ve just learned of a massive data breach at one of the country’s most popular chain restaurants and your finances could be at risk.

Has your financial information been stolen?

We’re talking about the popular fast-food chain, Sonic Drive-In. There are about 3,600 Sonic locations across 45 states in the U.S.

KrebsOnSecurity recently discovered about 5 million stolen credit and debit card numbers for sale on the Dark Web. A common thread with many of the stolen cards is they were recently used to make purchases at different Sonic locations. The company later confirmed that it had recently seen unusual security activity with its point-of-sale (POS) system.
