Chili's reveals possible data breach at some restaurants

Data dining disaster: Chili's announces breach in systems

The restaurant announced Saturday that payment card information of some patrons was compromised at certain Chili's restaurants as the result of a 'data incident'.

The company said they believe the incident affects customers who made in-restaurant purchases between March and April of 2018.

Personal information such as social security number, full date of birth, or federal or state identification number was not collected.
