After warning customers of a potential data breach last month, Jason’s Deli says it has now been able to confirm that an unidentified hacker was able to access an estimated 2 million credit card numbers processed by cash registers at some of its restaurants nationwide.
The Beaumont-based chain said in a written statement that it believes hackers began using malware to gather data from its corporate-owned locations on June 8.
In addition to credit card numbers, Jason’s Deli said cardholders’ names were obtained, as well as expiration dates and other sensitive information.
Several Central Texas restaurants were affected, including:
- 10225 Research Blvd., Austin
- 13729 Research Blvd., Austin
- 9600 S. Interstate 35, Austin
- 1000 E. 41st St., Austin
- 3213 E. Central Texas Expy., Killeen
- 117 Louis Henna Blvd., Round Rock
- 3036 S. 31st St., Temple
- 3300 Bee Cave Road, Westlake area
The breach has been contained, Jason’s Deli said, and an investigation continues into how hackers were able to access the cash register system.
While other businesses hit by hackers have offered free credit monitoring services, Jason’s Deli has not announced plans to do so. Instead, the company suggests customers monitor their own credit reports and potentially even freeze their accounts.
