The Connecticut Better Business Bureau has issued a warning in response to Chipotle releasing locations affected by a credit card data breach. The two restaurants in Danbury were among those where malware could access payment card data between late March and mid-April.
The BBB says as in this case, it may take days, weeks or months for large companies to discover and disclose the theft of private or financial customer information. Even though credit card numbers and three-digit verification codes were captured, Chipotle says no personal information was stolen.
The BBB is reminding people that you can obtain a free, no strings attached credit report at Annual-credit-report-dot-com, which is run by the three credit reporting companies. You are entitled to a report from each of the companies every 12 months.
