Credit card thieves hit nearly 70 Chipotle, Pizzeria Locale restaurants in Colorado

DENVER -- Thieves might have gotten their hands on financial information at customers at Chipotle or Pizzeria Locale stores across the state.

Chipotle Mexican Grill said cybersecurity firms, law enforcement and payment card networks were involved in an investigation into a breach of customers' payment card security.

Malware designed to access financial data from cards used by consumers was detected at certain Chipotle and Pizzeria Locale restaurants between March 24 and April 18.

According to the statement, the malware searched for tracked data which sometimes has the cardholder name, card number, expiration date and internal verification code that can be potentially read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card.

The company said "there is no indication that other customer information" might have been accessed.

The company says if a customer used a card during that time frame, they "should remain vigilant to the possibility of fraud by reviewing their payment card statements for any unauthorized activity."

The company said the malware has been removed and it is looking for ways to step up cybersecurity at restaurants.
