Chick-fil-A Investigating Possible Breach

In a Dec. 30 statement, the chain says it has recently received reports of potential unusual activity involving payment cards used at a few of its restaurants.

Many issuers suspected the merchant to be Chick-fil-A or its payments processor, Charge Anywhere, which in early December confirmed a breach of its network linked to malware.

One executive with a banking institution based in the Southeast, who also asked not to be named, says considerable fraud linked to Chick-fil-A first surfaced over the summer. But this executive says the fraud at Chick-fil-A is likely linked to a breach of the chain's processor, Charge Anywhere, not a POS attack targeted solely at the fast-food chain.
