Restaurant chain PDQ announced they were the target of a cyber-attack.

PDQ said a hacker exploited part of their computer system and accessed personal information from customers.

It is believed the hacker gained entry through an outside technology vendor’s remote connection tool.

The unauthorized access occurred from May 19, 2017 to April 20, 2018.

PDQ learned on June 8, 2018 hat credit card information and/or some names of customers may have been stolen.

All restaurant locations in operation during some or all of the breach period time were affected.

The restaurants at Tampa International Airport, the Amalie Arena location and the PNC Arena location were not affected.

If you used a credit card for your purchase at a PDQ restaurant during the breach period, then your credit card number, expiration date, cardholder verification value and or name may have been accessed or acquired by a hacker.

Customers should review account statements closely, monitor free credit reports and report unauthorized charges to your card issuer immediately.
