Dairy Queen is the latest restaurant chain to fall victim to a data breach involving stolen credit and debit card information. According to the Star Tribune, the Blizzard-slinging shop has confirmed that "customer data at a limited number of stores may be at risk." The company added that they were currently "gathering information" on the matter and working with law enforcement.

Dairy Queen originally denied the breach when security blogger Krebs on Security first brought the attack to light earlier this month. The chain would not reveal how many customers or how many locations had been affected but Krebs writes that there are possible breaches at locations in several states including Florida, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas. Earlier this year, pan-Asian chain P.F. Chang's also announced that 33 of its locations across 20 states were affected by a similar security breach. The credit card information was solid on an online black market.
