Dairy Queen is the latest company to suffer a customer card hack, and locations in Connecticut were effected.
The company was the target of malware hack that stole customers’ credit card information.
The names of customers, credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates were all compromised during this data breach.
The company said there is no evidence that social security numbers, pins or email addresses were affected.
Three locations in Connecticut were targeted;
- Dairy Queen and Orange Julius location on Homer Street in Waterbury
- DQ Grill and Chill Restaurant on Sullivan Ave. in South Windsor
- Dairy Queen on Enfield St. in Enfield.
The attacks in Connecticut happened during the month of August.
Out of the 4,500 Dairy Queen and Orange Julius locations 395 were hacked between the months of August and October.
Representatives said it was the same malware that hit retailers across the country and they also said it has been contained and it no longer poses a threat to customers.
If you believe you may have been a victim you can check with your bank to make sure your card was not misused.
Dairy Queen is also offering free identity-repair services for one year to customers of the locations that were struck.
