One of the biggest BBQ chain restaurants in America, Dickey’s has suffered a huge breach, leaking the card details of more than 3 million customers. This information was posted on Joker’s Stash, a carding and fraud forum. A cybersecurity firm called Gemini Advisory, who track financial fraud made the initial discovery of the breach.
The company was made aware of this breach earlier in the week when cybercriminals began advertising the mass collection of customer data, calling it ‘Bleeding Sun’.
After some analysis on the data, it was clear that hacker had obtained it through gaining access to the in-store Point of Sale (POS) system used in the restaurants.
