DALLAS (AP) — The owner of the Elephant Bar restaurant chain says a potential data breach could affect customers in seven states who paid with credit or debit cards.
CM Ebar says the security incident involves nearly 30 Elephant Bar locations. The Dallas-based chain on Tuesday apologized for the apparent breach and urged customers to review their card statements.
Elephant Bar on Nov. 3 was alerted by its card processor about illegal software found on payment processing systems in certain restaurants.
The sites included 20 in California, three in Colorado, two in Arizona and one each in Florida, Missouri, New Mexico and Nevada. The purchases were between Aug. 12 and Dec. 4.
CM Ebar says it’s disabled the malware and taken steps to upgrade security. Customers can call 1-866-578-5412 for additional information.
