 Sonic Customers Suffer Massive Credit Card Hack - Sep. 28, 2017


Drive-in burger chain Sonic Corp has confirmed a credit-card related data breach that has affected an unknown number of its store payment systems. The news caused the company's shares to fall more than 4 percent in intraday trade on Wednesday.

 

Brian Krebs, an independent journalist who investigates breaches, reported late Tuesday on his KrebsOnSecurity website that a data breach in Sonic's payment systems may have led to a "fire sale" on millions of stolen credit and debit card accounts that are now being peddled in shadowy underground cybercrime stores.

 

A batch of some five million credit and debit card accounts were first put up for sale on September 18 in a credit-card theft bazaar called Joker's Stash, Krebs said.

 

Sonic said it was informed last week by its credit card processor of "unusual activity" regarding credit cards used at its restaurants.
