A national deli chain has confirmed that it has contained a breach of customer payment card information first detected last month.

In a statement posted to the company website on Jan. 11th, Jason's Deli says that it was notified by payment processors on Dec. 22nd, 2017 that a large quantity of payment card information from various Jason's Deli locations had appeared for sale on the “dark web."

The company released a preliminary public statement on Dec. 28th, 2017 detailing the situation and their initial response.

Based on investigation findings, Jason's Deli stated that criminals used malware to obtain payment card information off of a number of our point-of-sales (POS) terminals at various restaurants starting on June 8th, 2017.

The company has determined that approximately 2 million unique payment card numbers may have been impacted.

Among the affected restaurants are a Pensacola store located at 1540 Airport Blvd., and a Mobile, Ala. store located at 3756 Airport Blvd.

During the course of the investigation, Jason’s Deli said it worked closely with third-party forensics and cyber security firms, as well as federal law enforcement to contain the breach and disable the malware in all of the locations where it was discovered.

Jason's Deli advises customers who believe they may have been affected by the breach to review their credit and debit card statements for any unauthorized charges.

The company also urges those affected to contact their credit or debit card company to report the potentially unauthorized activity as well as Jason's Deli at or by calling 409-838-1976.
