  • 400 Dairy Queen Locations Hacked

    Here's a roundup of the latest data breach news: Dairy Queen – On Thursday, Dairy Queen confirmed that nearly 400 Dairy Queen locations (and one Orange Julius location) were compromised by Backoff malware in August. When news of a potential breach first broke in August, Dairy Queen denied the the breach initially [...]

    Apparently, malware was used to gain information on customers at 400 Dairy Queen locations.

    It's strange though, I got the notice through a GWRRA mailing...

        Was just at the one on Rt. 12 Spring Grove heading into Wis. I checked company website, http://www.dairyqueen.com/us-en/data...ocalechange=1& , and for Illinois and Wis, locations stated do not affect me. However, I will have to start paying cash and I was really beginning to like the features of having no cash and using a debit card.

          This should probably be a sticky on the main board!

            My wife and I each use a debit card (separate accounts) and never have over $200 in it. It has been compromised several times, the latest was the home depot incident. Our bank just sent us new ones.

            Yes it takes a bit of work to keep shuffling funds around, but its much easier and cheaper than taking a big hit.

            But the real question is why are these companies keeping the card data? Once they have the authorization code approving the transaction, the card data should not be stored at all. This is a real pet peeve of mine - just another way to invade my privacy and expose me to financial and credit risk.
