Banks: Credit Card Breach at CiCi’s Pizza

"CiCi’s Pizza, an American fast food business based in Coppell, Texas
with more than 500 stores in 35 states, appears to be the latest
restaurant chain to struggle with a credit card breach. The data
available so far suggests that hackers obtained access to card data at
affected restaurants by posing as technical support specialists for the
company’s point-of-sale provider, and that multiple other retailers have
been targeted by this same cybercrime gang.

Over the past two months, KrebsOnSecurity has received inquiries from
fraud fighters at more than a half-dozen financial institutions in the
United States — all asking if I had any information about a possible
credit card breach at CiCi’s. Every one of these banking industry
sources said the same thing: They’d detected a pattern of fraud on cards
that all had all been used in the last few months at various CiCi’s
Pizza locations."
