P.F. Chang's: 33 restaurants affected in data breach

The restaurant chain P.F. Chang's China Bistro said Monday a security breach first reported in June may have led to the theft of customer data from credit and debit cards used at 33 restaurants.

An intruder may have stolen card numbers and possibly names and expiration dates of customers's credit and debit cards used over the course of about 8 months. But the chain has not determined that any specific card holders' data was stolen.

In Monday's statement the chain updated its progress in investigating a breach first reported in June. The statement said all card data has been processed securely at all locations since June 11.

The security breach of their card processing systems occurred between October 19th of 2013, and June 11th of 2014, one day after the Secret Service made the company aware of the breach.

Federico went on to say the company initiated an internal investigation, to assess the breadth of the security breach, involving their card processing systems, and they have reason to believe the intruder may have stolen credit and debit card numbers, names, and expiration dates of some customer's cards.
