Popular restaurant chain Chili's has confirmed it was hit by a data breach compromising the data of some of its customers. The restaurant became aware of the breach on Friday May 11th but saying the breach happened at some point between March and April.

While a number of its restaurants were affected, it hasn't yet been said how many and where they're located. Malware was used to gather payment card information, including credit and debit card numbers and cardholder names. They are assuring guests, there's "no reason to believe" customers' information will be at risk at its restaurants going forward.

"We deeply value our relationships with all of you and sincerely apologize to those who may have been affected," the company said in a statement. "We take the security and privacy of your data seriously and are working diligently to address this issue."

If you did use a card at a Chili's between March and April, Chili's is advising you keep an eye out for any suspicious activity with your account, and consider checking your credit report to ensure no new lines of credit has been taken out in your name.
