Dublin, Ohio-based, fast food chain Wendy’s confirmed that hackers breached customer payment card data at 1,025 of its restaurants nationwide, a number considerably higher than originally believed.

Wendy’s said it worked with forensic experts, federal law enforcement and card industry contacts and found that specific card information (cardholder name, card number, expiration date, cardholder verification value and service code) was targeted by malware. The investigation found that the malware first hit some franchisee systems as early as fall 2015.
