What Happened?  Charleston Lube Partners, LLC utilizes a point of sale system at its restaurant that is managed by Midwest POS Solutions, Inc. (“Midwest POS”).  Charleston Lube Partners, LLC was alerted to unusual activity relating to payment cards that may have been used at this restaurant and immediately began working with third-party forensic investigators to investigate the report.

Through these investigations, it was discovered that payment card information may have been accessed as a result of the installation of malicious software on the point of sale system utilized at this restaurant. It was further determined that Midwest POS credentials were used to remotely access the point of sale system at this location, which allowed an unauthorized actor to deploy the malicious software into the point of sale system.

    I found this today with a list of all the locations affected. They are all independently owned so we are seeing a bunch of notices. https://www.cshub.com/attacks/articles/incident-of-the-week-quaker-steak-lube-alerts-customers-to-payment-card-incident
