“ What happened?
Earl Enterprises, which manages popular restaurant brands including Buca di Beppo, Planet Hollywood, Earl of Sandwich, Chicken Guy!, Mixology, and Tequila Taqueria, announced that nearly 100 restaurant locations around the United States may have exposed customer payment card data over a 10-month period from May 2018 to March 2019.

In a data breach notice posted on its website, Earl Enterprises confirmed that malware was installed on some point of sale systems at certain affected restaurant locations. The malware was designed to capture payment card data, including credit and debit card numbers, expiration dates, and cardholder names. Online orders paid for online through third-party apps or platforms were not affected by this breach. Per the company, the incident has been contained and is being investigated.

Earl Enterprises has yet to confirm the size, but independent security researchers reported over 2 million stolen cards are now for sale on the dark web on the dark web, seemingly as a result of this breach.“

I like Buca and Earl of Sandwich, but thankfully I don't think I've been to either in the timeframe listed.

Why anyone would let anything other than a gigantic banking entity retain credit card info on their website. Is ordering lunch over the internet that big of a deal?

The last time I was at Buca di Beppo was for dinner after the last day of the last MWSF.

I doubt I'll ever to to Planet, and haven't been to any of the other places.

I go to McDonald's, El Pollo Loco, and Chick-Fil-A when dining out because they accept Apple Pay.

They've all been doing so for awhile and tapping a phone is big deal, but when I use my Watch I always get a pleasant comment.
