||Data breach impacts Tupelo restaurant
NEWTOWN, Pa. (WTVA) — A computer data breach has grabbed the credit card information from customers at hundreds of restaurants, including Lost Pizza in Tupelo.
Signature Systems says malware in its software was gathering information on card users at 324 restaurants across the country.
Lost Pizza locations in Tupelo and Southaven were among those using the software.
A statement says the company determined someone gained access to a user name or password used to remotely access the POS systems.
They say the person installed the malware to capture payment card data swiped through the terminals.
Signature Systems says the dates for the breach were from June 16 through August 5.
It took the company until mid-September at some restaurants to remove the malware.
