News has broken today that there has been a credit card breach at the P.F. Chang’s China Bistro.
On June 9, thousands of newly-stolen credit and debit cards went up for sale on rescator[dot]so, an underground store best known for selling tens of millions of cards stolen in the Target breach. Several banks contacted by KrebsOnSecurity said they acquired from this new batch multiple cards that were previously issued to customers, and found that all had been used at P.F. Chang’s locations between the beginning of March 2014 and May 19, 2014.
"It's unknown how widespread the breach is, but banks told Krebs that the card information appeared to have been stolen from locations in at least six states as well as Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Chile, and the Middle East. The card numbers, which are being sold for between $18 and $140, were used between March and May."
There are 211 P.F. Chang's locations in the US and 192 Pei Wei Asian Diner restaurants, it isn't known if all locations have been affected, if so the total number of cards stolen could be 1 to 2 million.
