Hackers used malware to steal customer payment data from most of Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc’s restaurants over a span of three weeks, the company said on Friday, adding to woes at the chain whose sales had just started recovering from a string of food safety lapses in 2015. Chipotle said it did not know how many payment cards or customers were affected by the breach that struck most of its roughly 2,250 restaurants for varying amounts of time between March 24 and April 18, spokesman Chris Arnold said via email.
- Hackers have struck another major chain and got private information on customers from Chipotle.
- Chipotle claims that hackers have gotten access to some payment information in different locations across the country.
- Chipotle is doing everything that they can do to make it right for their customers.
