Wendy's has unveiled more details about a February cyber attack that exposed customer data at hundreds of locations around the country.
The data breach is now known to have included cardholder names, card numbers, expiration dates, and CVV numbers, KCCI 8 reported — basically, everything a criminal would need to use your credit card to make purchases. The company has also released a list of locations that were affected by the breach, searchable by city and state.
After first identifying unusual payment card activity in some of its franchise-owned restaurants this past February, Wendy's managed to shut down a second breach in early June.
The Ohio-based company is also offering free "fraud consultation and identity restoration services" for customers who had their data stolen as a result of the data breach. Meanwhile, the chain is facing a class action lawsuit in Florida over the incident.
