Did You Swipe Your Card at Jason’s Deli? It May Be On The Dark Web
I just swiped my card there a couple days ago for their salad bar. Ugh...
So basically Jason's Deli was notified by payment processors that Credit Card information is "For Sale" on the dark web.
On Friday, Dec. 22, 2017, our company was notified by payment processors – the organizations that manage the electronic connections between Jason’s Deli locations and payment card issuers – that MasterCard security personnel had informed it 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’s management immediately activated our response plan, including engagement of a leading threat response team, 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.
If you have eaten at Jason's Deli, keep an eye on your accounts and report any suspicious activity.
