Zaxbys has identified several store locations -- including two in Middle Georgia -- that have had a breach of its computer systems.
Credit card processing companies identified certain Zaxbys locations as common points of purchase for some fraudulent credit card activity, according to a news release. Zaxbys Franchising Inc. assisted those stores in reviewing the issue, and during the course of the investigation identified some suspicious malware files on the licensees computer systems at several Zaxbys locations.
Two of those stores were at 1700 N. Columbia St. in Milledgeville and at 861 Warren Drive in Warner Robins, according to the companys web site. The entire list is at https://dataprivacyinformation.
Because the malware files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers, Zaxbys Franchising informed appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity, the release stated.
Zaxbys Franchising is working with all of its store locations to implement additional security measures to prevent further intrusions, the release stated.
Even though the company has notified the three major U.S. credit reporting agencies about the incident, customers are encouraged to monitor their financial accounts and get a copy of their credit report in order to catch any unauthorized activity.
