RMH Franchise Holdings announced that diners who visited one of their 167 Applebee’s restaurants between November 23, 2017 and January 2, 2018 may have had their payment card information compromised via point-of-sale malware. RMH Franchise Holdings discovered the incident on February 13, 2018 and took steps to investigate and remediate the infection. The breach does not impact payments made online or those made using tabletop self-pay devices. The NJCCIC recommends those who have dined at one of the impacted locations monitor payment card statements for unauthorized charges, consider placing a freeze on their credit, and immediately notify banks if fraudulent activity is observed on their accounts.
