A data breach reported by a Minnesota company has implications for those who pay by card at several cafes and restaurant chains, including Dunn Bros. Coffee.
North Country Business Products, based in Bemidji, provides point of sale services to many businesses in Minnesota and out of state.
On Tuesday, it announced that it had been the victim of a recent data breach that may have resulted in hackers accessing payment information of those who used credit and debit cards at certain restaurants between Jan. 3 and Jan. 24.
The breach was caused by Malware, but has since been fixed. Information potentially compromised include names, credit card numbers, expiration dates and CVV security numbers.
Restaurants affected include more than 50 Dunn Brothers coffee shops across Minnesota, many of them in the Twin Cities metro. You can find a full list of the specific stores affected here.
