Dairy Queen latest to suffer customer card hack

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

NEW YORK » Ice cream and fast food chain Dairy Queen is the latest retailer to reveal a hack of its customer data.

The company said Thursday that hackers may have gained access to customer names, credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates at 395 stores between August and October. The company said it has fixed the malware problem.

International Dairy Queen Inc. has about 4,500 franchised stores in the U.S. It’s also the parent of the Orange Julius chain, and one stand-alone Orange Julius store was breached. None of the nine Dairy Queen Hawaii locations was affected, according to the company’s website.

Dairy Queen said there’s no evidence Social Security numbers, card PIN numbers or email addresses were stolen.

The Edina, Minnesota-based company, which is owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., is offering customers free identity repair services.

Major retailers including Home Depot, Target and Michael’s have been the target of cyberattacks in the past year.
