Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (Chipotle) has published further information about the payment card security breach that affected certain Chipotle restaurants between March 24, 2017 and April 18, 2017. Chipotle’s investigation identified that malware designed to access payment card data from cards was used at point of sale (POS) devices at certain locations. Not all locations were involved, but six Albuquerque locations were listed as part of the security breach. More information can be found at: http://www.chipotle.com/security

 

Nusenda Credit Union was aware of this security breach and took action earlier this month by reissuing affected member’s chip debit and credit cards. Personalized emails/letters were sent to members who were potentially at risk on Tuesday, May 9; potentially breached cards were automatically closed on May 24.
