Chili's has confirmed it was hit by a data breach that compromised the data of some of its customers.

The restaurant chain said the breach happened sometime during March and April, but that it didn't find out about it until Friday.

Malware was used to gather payment card information, including credit and debit card numbers and cardholder names.

It says a number of its restaurants were affected, but hasn't yet said how many and where they're located.

Chili's has nine restaurants in the Twin Cities metro area.

It says there's "no reason to believe" customers' information will be at risk at its restaurants going forward.
