One Idaho Store Among Dairy Queens That Were Hacked

Posted By on Fri, Oct 10, 2014 at 9:21 AM

Customers of Dairy Queen were hit with some chilling news Thursday, when the fast-food favorite revealed that its customers' payment card data had been hacked at 395 of its locations.

Dairy Queen is the latest in a string of retailers—including Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, Target, P.F. Chang's and Michaels—where financial data has been breached by malicious software. 

Dairy Queen officials said that it was primarily targeted for three weeks, beginning in early August.

One Idaho store was on the list of locations that were targeted: the Dairy Queen on North 2nd East in the Eastern Idaho community of Rexburg. Multiple Oregon stores were also hit, including locations in Baker City and La Grande. Five locations in Montana were hit, including Bozeman, Helena and two Butte stores. One store each in Utah and Wyoming were also targeted.

Dairy Queen says the stolen information included customer names, payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates.
