Cici's Pizza Alerts Customers to Card Breach at 130+ Locations

07/21/2016
Coppell, Texas-based fast-casual restaurant chain Cici’s Pizza acknowledged a credit card breach at more than 135 locations. Cici’s released a company statement alerting customers that in early March 2016, the company received reports from several of its restaurant locations that point-of-sale systems were not working properly.
 
“The point-of-sale vendor immediately began an investigation to assess the problem and initiated heightened security measures,” the company said in a press release. “After malware was found on some point-of-sale systems, the company began a restaurant-by-restaurant review and remediation, and retained a third-party cybersecurity firm, 403 Labs, to perform a forensic analysis.”
 
According to Cici’s, “the vast majority of the intrusions began in March of 2016,” but the company acknowledges that the breach started as early as 2015 at some locations. Cici’s said it was confident the malware has been removed from all stores and posted a list of affected locations and dates of exposure.
