Truluck’s Seafood Data Breach
It’s been recently reported that the popular, Houston-based restaurant chain, Truluck’s Seafood, Steak & Crab House, is the latest company to report a data breach; affecting consumer’s credit and debit cards. The Truluck’s Data Breach is said to have compromised the security of payment card information from purchases at eight locations between Nov. 21, 2018, and Dec. 8, 2018. Credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates may have been captured, but customers’ names and addresses were not exposed.
To reiterate, the affected locations are as follows:
- Austin – Arboretum
- Austin – Downtown
- Chicago – Downtown
- Naples, Florida
- Southlake, Texas
- The Woodlands
Per the release, any credit or debit cards used at the downtown Austin location could have had their information captured between Nov. 4 and Dec. 8, 2018.
Truluck’s Seafood first became aware of the data breach after the FBI contacted them about potential hacking of its computer systems. Truluck’s then hired third-party forensic experts to investigate, and guess what they found? Well, their investigation confirmed that “an unauthorized actor inserted malware into the point-of-sale systems at eight restaurants to capture customer payment card information used for purchases.” (per the company’s release). That sounds like the folks who ate there are in for more than a tummy ache.
