DENVER (NEWS10) – Chipotle has now identified the malware used to breach customer data and steal credit card information earlier this year.
“I just got my card last week in the mail saying it was compromised,” Cora Chase said.
Anyone who swiped their card between March 24 and April 18 may have had their account information stolen. Chase eats at the Saratoga Chipotle about once a month. She wasn’t surprised by the restaurant’s announcement.
“It’s crazy how often it does occur, though,” she said.
Chase said it’s happened to her three times in the past year. Not just at Chipotle, but other stores as well.
Fortunately, she was immediately notified by her bank each time. Chase said she never lost a dime.
Chipotle said the malware is removed and are continuing to work with cyber security firms to find new ways to prevent it from happening again.
Chipotle has urged customers to be vigilant in keeping an eye on their accounts and provided an online tool to verify if a particular location was affected.
