Earl Enterprises

Earl Enterprises has confirmed a Point of Sale (PoS) breach affecting patrons who dined at the parent company’s restaurants between May 23, 2018 and March 18, 2019. The restaurants include Buca di Beppo, Earl of Sandwich, Planet Hollywood, Chicken Guy!, Mixology, Disney Springs, and Tequila Taqueria at various locations across 40 states. Online orders were not affected as the malware was installed at PoS machines at various eateries. A threat intelligence analyst notified ZDNet of a “huge new card dump” for sale on a darknet forum claiming to contain 2.15 million stolen records. Earl Enterprises is currently working with federal law enforcement, and has published an online resourcefor customers who may have been affected. The NJCCIC recommends users review all banking and credit cards statements for suspicious transactions and contact their bank if information has been compromised.
