Sonic Drive-In, a U.S. fast-food chain with nearly 3,600 locations across 45 states, has acknowledged a breach affecting an unknown number of store payment systems. The ongoing breach may have led to millions of stolen credit and debit card numbers that are now being sold.
Sonic issued the following statement to KrebsOnSecurity:
“We are working to understand the nature and scope of this issue, as we know how important this is to our guests. We immediately engaged third-party forensic experts and law enforcement when we heard from our processor. While law enforcement limits the information we can share, we will communicate additional information as we are able.”
If First Reliance Bank receives information from our card processor that your card has been impacted, we’ll notify you and reissue you a new debit card.
We recommend you set up ALERTS on your accounts so that you can be notified when transactions are occurring. These can be emailed to you, sent to you as text messages or you can see them upon login to your account depending on how you set up your preferences.
