Athens-Based Resturant Firm Experiences Malware Attack

January 16, 2013

A Georgia-based restaurant firm says suspicious computer files have been found at some of its locations, prompting it to warn customers about the potential for fraud.

Zaxby’s Franchising Inc. said in a statement that the suspicious files may have resulted in unauthorized access to credit and debit card information at more than 100 stores.

The Athens-based firm says the affected stores are in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Virginia.

The issue involves malware files, according to company officials, which could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers.

The company says it has notified law enforcement of the potential criminal activity.

Zaxby’s says a forensic investigation is currently underway, but hasn’t yet determined whether credit or debit card data left the processing systems of any stores.
