Data breach at Chick-fil-A!

Hundreds of Chick-fil-A locations - 1,850 in all - may have been breached the same way that Target and Home Depot were attacked earlier this year. If you've eaten at one of these stores over the recent months, then your payment card might be at risk.

Brian Krebs, a security expert and journalist, believes that 41 states may have been affected. He believes this to be case mostly because it's been pretty consistent across every fast food restaurant breach this year.

Both Jimmy Johns and Dairy Queen outsourced their credit card swiping point-of-sale systems. They're also franchises. What happened in both cases was that the third party company that the franchises outsourced their point-of-sale services to was breached.

One bank has reported 9,000 fraudulent charges stemming from Chick-fil-A.
