P.F. Chang's named on Monday 33 specific restaurants where customer data might have been compromised after news last month that thousands of credit and debit cards might have been hacked at the chain. The locations span from Scottsdale, Arizona, to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The stolen information includes credit and debit card numbers, and in some cases names and expiration dates. The security breach first came to light when stolen cards appeared on the same black market online where millions of cards from the Target breach in December were sold.
“The security compromise has been contained and P.F. Chang's has been processing credit and debit card data securely at all locations since June 11, 2014,” the company said in a statement. The company claims it has not identified any specific customers who were affected and that it's working with the Secret Service and third-party security firms to investigate the breach.
