Darden reports possible data breach of 567,000 payment card numbers at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen restaurants

Reuters reports:

Darden Restaurants Inc said on Wednesday it was recently notified by federal authorities that guest data from certain of its Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen restaurants may have been compromised in a cyber attack incident.

The Olive Garden owner said its systems and networks were unaffected by the incident, as the breach occurred on a legacy system of Cheddar restaurants chain, which was acquired by Darden in 2017.

Information from about 567,000 payment card numbers may have been exposed through affected restaurants in 23 U.S. states between Nov. 3, 2017 and Jan. 2, 2018, Darden said.
