Credit Card Breach Hits Group of 10 Boston Restaurants

BOSTON HACK HARPBOSTON (WGGB) — After a massive system hack allowed thieves to access the credit and debit card numbers of nearly 40 million Target customers, a similar breach is hitting closer to home.

Credit card hacks at several restaurants in Boston have customers checking their statements.

Restaurants in the Boston area owned by the conglomerate Briar Group were discovered to have been hacked in October and November, according to our affiliate WCVB.  The thieves took credit card numbers, expiration dates and security codes.

The data breach at 10 Boston restaurants could affect thousands of people. The restaurants include the Harp, Ned Devine’s, Anthem and the Green Briar, among several others.

The state sued the company in 2009 for a data breach, and won a $110,000 settlement.
