Jason’s Deli Possible Credit Card Breach
In a statement posted on Jason’s Deli’s website, the company said MasterCard security personnel found that
a large quantity of payment card information had appeared for sale on the ‘dark web,’ and that an analysis of the data indicated that at least a portion of the data may have come from various Jason’s Deli locations.”
Jason’s Deli is headquartered in Texas and operates or franchises 266 restaurants in 28 states but as of now they are not sure if a breach had occurred and if so at what locations.
Jason’s Deli’s management immediately activated our response plan, including engagement of a leading threat response team, the involvement of other forensic experts, and cooperation with law enforcement. Among the questions that investigators are working to determine is whether in fact, a breach took place, and if so, to determine its scope, the method employed, and whether there is any continuing breach or vulnerability.
The investigation is in its early stages and, as is typical in such situations, we expect it will take some time to determine exactly what happened. Jason’s Deli will provide as much information as possible as the inquiry progresses, bearing in mind that security and law enforcement considerations may limit the amount of detail we can provide.
Jason’s Deil recommended that customers monitor their payment card accounts and report any suspicious activity to their card issuers. Anyone with questions can contact Jason’s Deli via email or by calling (409) 838-1976.
