Zaxby's Release: Zaxby’s Locations Identify Data Security Breach

ATHENS, Ga. (January 11, 2013) – Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. announced today that certain licensed locations have identified suspicious files on their systems that may have resulted in unauthorized access to credit and debit card information or have been identified by credit card processing companies as common points of purchase for some fraudulent activity.

Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. has notified appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity, which is believed to have originated from external sources, and will continue to cooperate with any investigation of this situation.

Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. assisted those stores notified by credit card processing companies in reviewing the issue. During the course of its forensic investigation, Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. identified some suspicious files, including malware, on the licensees’ computer systems at certain Zaxby’s locations. Because those files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers, Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. informed appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity.

Although the forensic investigation has not determined whether credit or debit card data left the processing systems of any of the locations, Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. is concerned that the existence of the suspicious files could indicate that an attacker or attackers may have accessed data, including credit and debit card information.

Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. is working with all of its store locations to implement additional security measures to prevent further intrusions. A list of affected store locations can be found by clicking here and will be updated as appropriate.

Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. takes the security of guest information very seriously and is working closely with the affected store locations to provide notice to potentially affected guests. Zaxby’s Franchising, Inc. encourages all potentially affected guests to monitor their financial accounts for any unauthorized activity and to check their credit scores.

Interested guests can order a free copy of their credit reports by visiting the website www.annualcreditreport.com, by calling (877) 322-8228, or by completing the Annual Credit Report Form at www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/pdf-0093-annual-report-request-form.pdf. Any incident of fraud that guests may identify should promptly be reported to local law enforcement, the appropriate state Attorney General’s office, and the Federal Trade Commission.

Associated Press Release

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia-based restaurant firm says suspicious computer files have been found at some of its locations, prompting it to warn customers about the potential for fraud.

Zaxby's Franchising Inc. said in a statement that the suspicious files may have resulted in unauthorized access to credit and debit card information at more than 100 stores.

The Athens-based firm says the affected stores are in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Virginia.

Company officials say the issue involves malware files, which could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers. The company says it notified law enforcement of the potential criminal activity. Zaxby's says a forensic investigation hasn't determined whether credit or debit card data left the processing systems of any stores.
