Arby’s Restaurant Group (ARG) was the latest victim to succumb to a credit card breach. This breach was due malicious software being installed on payment card systems throughout hundreds of its locations nationwide. Most of the stores affected by the breach were corporate stores, franchise stores were not affected. The PSCU (the payment solution manager for credit unions) has received long lists from Visa and MasterCard regarding over 355,000 credit and debit cards. PSCU says that with a number of cards compromised it is bigger than just one fast-food chain, they expect that another fast-food chain will be expecting to make a statement about another compromise shortly. Dan Berger, president and CEO of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions suggests that people use their credit cards, which are easier and faster to report fraud on. Using debit cards could run the risk of wiping out your bank account as well as bouncing checks.
