Chipotle malware hack impacted Westchester and Fairfield County locations

Cybersecurity attack targeted card data from point-of-sale devices.

Four Westchester locations and 10 Fairfield County outlets were part of the payment card security incident reported last month by Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.

The company determined that a malware attack designed to access payment card data from point-of-sale devices took place at multiple Chipotle locations between March 24 and April 18.

In a statement on its website, the company said the malware “searched for track data (which sometimes has cardholder name in addition to card number, expiration date, and internal verification code) read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card as it was being routed through the POS device.” While the company insisted that there was “no indication that other customer information was affected,” it nonetheless advised customers to review their credit and debit card statements.

Among the affected Chipotle restaurant locations were the Westchester outlets in Dobbs Ferry, Rye Brook, White Plains and Yonkers and the Fairfield County locations in Bridgeport, Fairfield, Greenwich, Riverside, Shelton and Westport plus the two Chipotle stores in Danbury and the two in Darien.
