Restaurant Chain P.F. Chang’s Hit with Large Security Breach

News Epic FailRestaurant chain P.F. Chang’s announced today that it has been the subject of a large data breach involving credit and debit cards. Though the Pearl District restaurant closed, their are still branches in Tanasbourne and Bridgeport Village.

From Krebs on Security.com,

On June 9, thousands of newly-stolen credit and debit cards went up for sale on rescator[dot]so, an underground store best known for selling tens of millions of cards stolen in the Target breach. Several banks contacted by KrebsOnSecurity said they acquired from this new batch multiple cards that were previously issued to customers, and found that all had been used at P.F. Chang’s locations between the beginning of March 2014 and May 19, 2014.

Bottom line, like the Target data breach, if you’ve been to P.F. Chang’s March – May, you’d better get new cards.
