Zaxby's announces possible data breach at several locations

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Zaxby's Franchising, Inc. has announced an incident where certain restaurants have identified suspicious files in their system.

These files can result in unauthorized access to credit or debit card information. Zaxby's Chief Financial Officer Blake Bailey said these files could possibly result in unauthorized access to credit or debit card information. Bailey said these cases happen far too often in restaurants and retailers, and the company has no idea how the files got into the system. The files, commonly referred to as malware, serve no business purpose whatsoever.

Zaxby's currently has a global security firm working the case, and so far no reports of customers having their data breached have been reported.
