Select Restaurants Inc. Breached
A little over a month ago, Select Restaurants Inc. was notified by their point-of-sales (PoS) system that there had been a breach. The breach compromised the credit and debit card data held by the company. Select Restaurants Inc. is not releasing the number of payment files that have been breached, nor are they sharing which restaurants were targeted. Select Restaurants owns several high-end eateries nationwide, such as Parkers’ Lighthouse and Pier W.
Google is also alerting web users, that the company’s website may be compromised.
Breaching Restaurant Payment Data Isn’t New
We recently wrote, More Security Breaches, Why Restaurants Are Becoming The Hacker’s Dream. This article discussed why the restaurant industry is being targeted, and the security vulnerabilities the industry continues to face. Over the last few years, there have been breaches at Landry’s Restaurants, CiCi’s Pizza, and Wendy’s, to name a few.
