Data breach alert: Popular restaurant chains hit by card-stealing malware

  • When hackers attack a business, they’re often after data that can put money in their pockets.
  • Typically, this comes in the form of the credit card data that passes through a business’s point of sale system (POS) every day.
  • According to new reports from BleepingComputer, POSs belonging to the Landry’s restaurant group were targeted in a large, coordinated malware attack between March 2019 and October 2019.
