Chipotle Releases Nationwide List of Breached Stores
Chipotle has released a nationwide list of stores that were targeted in the security breach between March and April of 2017.
Chipotle Mexican Grill is advising customers to check their bank records after malware was discovered in its payment system in late April.
According to the restaurant’s website, the chain is advising people to place fraud alerts and even freeze accounts if any suspicious activity appears in their banking accounts.
Chipotle says that any transactions made at identified stores between March 24 and April 18 could be exposed to the breach. In order to help customers find out if their accounts have been made vulnerable, Chipotle has created a database of targeted stores available on their website.
