Customer credit card info has been compromised at Jimmy John's sandwich shops in the Seattle-area and across the country. In a statement, the company confirms that an intruder gained remote access to the Jimmy John's point-of-sale system from June 16 to September 5; the company initially learned about a possible data breach July 30. Jimmy John's has since contained the breach, affecting customer cards that were swiped at 216 stores nationwide.
KIRO reports that three Seattle-area Jimmy John's locations were impacted, including shops in the University District, Renton, and Kirkland. Credit and debit card numbers, and in some instances cardholder name, verification code, and expiration date may have been compromised; free identity protection services are available to customers who ate at any of the affected locations between June 16 and September 5.
