It feels like it has been the year of the data breach, which is corporations' way of saying "someone hacked into our systems and stole your private information".
First it was Target last December; followed by P.F. Chang's; Home Depot; Jimmy John's and countless others.
Now the home of the Blizzard and the Dilly Bar has been hit. Dairy Queen announced in a press release that 395 DQ locations and one Orange Julius location had been infected with Backoff malware that provided hackers with access to an undisclosed number of customer names, payment card numbers and expiration dates.
The Dairy Queens in Woodland Mall in Kentwood and The Lakes Mall in Muskegon were among the locations. Seven other stores across Michigan were also compromised.
