Credit Card Malware Discovered in at least 160 Applebee’s Restaurants

So theyre saying it’s only the restaurants owned by this RMH company that were breached. I can’t find which specific ones they own at first glance.
I don’t eat there, but hoped to inform my fellow GLPrs the best that I could; again they dodge the specific locations affected extremely well.
“ Payments made online or using self-pay tabletop devices were not affected by this incident“..:so only where the wait staff ring you up and or the front registers? Hmm. Sounds like an inside job.
From the article:
What Happened
Upon learning of a potential incident, RMH promptly launched an investigation and obtained the help of leading cyber security forensics firms. Based on the experts’ investigation, RMH believes that unauthorized software placed on the point-of-sale system at certain RMH-owned and -operated Applebee’s restaurants was designed to capture payment card information and may have affected a limited number of purchases made at those locations.
What Information Was Involved
Certain guests’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes processed during limited time periods could have been affected. The exact dates vary by location. For a list of affected restaurants and the specific dates related to each location, please see below. Payments made online or using self-pay tabletop devices were not affected by this incident.
