The 10 Biggest Data Breaches Of 2017 (So Far)
Fast food giant Arby's announced in February that it had been hit by a security breach as a result of malicious software installed on the company's point-of-sale systems. The company said the incident affected around 1,000 of its 3,300 locations across the country, primarily in its corporate stores (Franchised locations didn't appear to be impacted.). Stolen information included credit card and debit data used at the stores between Oct. 25, 2016 and Jan. 19, 2017. Arby's said it has since removed the malicious software from its POS systems and has engaged Mandiant and other security experts to investigate the incident.
