US restaurant chain Landry's disclosed a security incident that involved the discovery of malware on the network of hundreds of restaurants. According to a notice published on its website, the company said the malware they found was designed to collect payment card data from cards swiped at its bars and restaurants. However, Landry's believes that only a small number of users were impacted, primarily due to security features the company implemented in 2016 after it experienced a first infection with POS malware. Landry's says that after the 2016 card breach they implemented a solution that uses end-to-end encryption to hide customer payment card data while it's being processed at its restaurants. By encrypting payment card data on its systems, even if malware was present on its restaurant network, the malware couldn't access customer data.
