Penn Station breach mushrooms to 80 locations; Heartland Payment and Secret Service investigating

Ruh oh. Tracy Kitten reports:

Restaurant chain Penn Station Inc. has upped the number of franchise locations affected by a payments breach to 80, almost double what it originally reported.

The breach, which Penn Station says it’s still investigating, is connected to a point-of-sale processing hack that may have exposed credit and debit details, but not PINs, at restaurants in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.


Penn Station says its investigation into the breach, which is being overseen by its processor, Heartland Payment Systems, and the Secret Service, is ongoing and that results, to date, have been inconclusive.
