If you've been to local outposts for McCormick & Schmick's or Oceanaire Seafood Room in the last couple of years, you might want to check your bank statement. Landry's Inc., which was the target of a massive credit card breach in December, has announced the results of an investigation into that breach.
Three Atlanta eateries were among the 500-plus that were affected. Customers who dined at the restaurants during the following timeframes should beware.
- McCormick & Schmick's Dunwoody: May 9, 2014, to March 14, 2015, and May 8, 2015, to December 3, 2015.
- McCormick & Schmick's CNN Center: May 9, 2014 to March 14, 2015.
- Oceanaire Seafood Room Midtown: May 5, 2015, to November 18, 2015.
"Enhanced security measures, including end-to-end encryption, have been implemented to prevent a similar issue from occurring in the future, and we continue to support law enforcement's investigation," reads a statement from Landry's Inc. "We are also working closely with the payment card networks to identify potentially affected cards so that the card issuers can be made aware and initiate heightened monitoring of those accounts. For those customers we can identify as having used their card at an affected location during that location's at-risk window and for whom we have a mailing address or email address, we will be mailing them a letter or sending them an email."
