Hackers caused havoc at four restaurant chains in the U.S. over the summer after compromising their payment systems with malware that stole customers’ payment card information.

In the last two days, McAlister’s Deli, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Schlotzsky’s, and Hy-Vee disclosed publicly that their networks were infected with point-of-sale malware copying data from cards used in person at certain locations.

McAlister’s, Moe’s, and Schlotzsky’s together have around 1,500 locations spread across the U.S. and are owned by the same parent company, Focus Brands.
