Food runner Sonic notified of unusual credit card activity

You can now buy the credit cards of Sonic customers for $25 on the dark web

SONIC has over 3,500 locations across the country, including four in CT.

If you've used your credit or debit card at a Sonic Restaurant, you may have had your data stolen, the company announced Wednesday.

On 18 September, a new batch of around five million credit and debit card accounts were put up for sale on an underground marketplace called Joker's Stash with most of the cards priced between $25 and $50 per piece.

Over email, Sonic corporate wrote to Mashable that the company's credit card processor informed them last week of "unusual activity regarding credit cards used at SONIC".

"The security of our guests' information is very important to Sonic", the company told IBTimes UK.

Sonic has 3,500 locations across the USA, but it's not yet clear how many restaurants or customers may be impacted.

Krebs wrote that multiple banks reported a pattern of fraudulent purchases on cards that had been used at Sonic.

The last fast-food chain to be impacted by a hack of this magnitude was Wendy's past year, which had more than 1,000 locations compromised.

In a statement released to KrebsOnSecurity, Sonic says it is working with law enforcement and third-party forensic experts to determine the scope of the issue. At this time, it's unknown how many locations are affected. It said it would communicate additional information as it is able.
