NORFOLK, Va. – Chipotle Mexican Grill provided more information about the payment card security incident that was reported April 25.

An investigation was completed by cyber security firms, law enforcement and the payment card networks.

The restaurant said malware designed to access payment card data from cards used on point-of-sale devices at certain Chipotle restaurants between March 24 and April 18.

The malware searched for data like cardholder’s names in addition to card number, expiration date and internal verification code.

It then read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card as it was being routed through the device. There is no indication that other customer information was affected, Chipotle said.

During the investigation Chipotle officials said they removed the malware they continue to work with cyber security firms to evaluate ways to enhance security measures.
