2014 was a big year for cyber hacks, with Sony at the forefront. 2015 is only a few days old and the attacks on major companies is not slowing down; Chick-fil-A has begun an investigation at some of its restaurants for a reported credit card breach.
Major credit card companies sent out alerts about the potential breach just before Christmas, noting the attack took place between December 2, 2013 and September 30, 2014. Over 9,000 customer cards have reportedly been affected by this cyber attack.
Chick-fil-A has said the incidents are isolated to only a few locations in Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
The company said customers affected by the fraudulent charges will not be responsible. The company will “arrange for free identity protection services, including credit monitoring, to any impacted customer.” Customers can also call (855)-398-6439 for additional support.
