Have you eaten at Rochester-based restaurant chain DiBella’s Subs since 2017? You should know that your credit card information may have been compromised after a breach of the eatery’s information systems, according to a statement on DiBella’s website. 

The business, which operates 47 stores across the country, was alerted by the FBI and credit card companies in August 2018 that its systems may have been breached by cybercrime syndicate FIN7, the statement read. The sophistication of the attack made it difficult for the company’s contracted firm to identify the root of the attack for several months, the company said. Malicious software, or “malware,” that could have enabled the theft of personal data was eventually discovered in the store systems. DiBella’s said it took immediate action to remove the malware and has been cooperating with cybersecurity experts and the FBI during the investigation.

Customer credit card information processed at DiBella’s locations, including names, payment card numbers, expiration dates and CVV numbers, may have been compromised in the breach. DiBella’s recently alerted customers to the potential breach after law enforcement personnel indicated it would not compromise the investigation to do so, the company said.
