Data dining disaster: Chili's announces breach in systems

The company announced that on Friday, they learned the payment card information for customers who dined at certain Chili's Grill & Bar corporate-owned restaurants was "compromised in a data incident".

The company believes it is limited to between March and April 2018 and only for in-restaurant purchases.

The company said it discovered malware on its point-of-sale systems that was used to harvest credit card and debit card information.

- Chili's Grill & Bar (@Chilis) May 12, 2018Brinker International said it is launching a probe to find out more information about the incident.

"We are working with third-party forensic experts to conduct an investigation to determine the details of what happened", Brinker said. The statement confirmed that no personal data such as social security numbers or dates of birth was breached as the company does not collect that type of information.

We are working diligently to address this issue and our priority will continue to be doing what is right for our Guests.

"However, out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that you remain vigilant and consider taking one or more [.] steps to avoid identity theft, obtain additional information, and protect your personal information". Chili's says they are now working to determine which locations and how many customers were affected.

Chili's joins a long list of retailers who have had their data breached in the past year.
