Diners at 167 Applebee's restaurants across 15 states may have had their credit card information exposed to hackers, after malware was discovered on the franchise owner's payment systems.

RMH says anyone with any other questions should call their call center at 888-764-7357 between 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Some of the information possible exposed includes names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes processed during limited time periods.

The local breaches seem to have occurred between December 6, 2017, and January 2, 2018. RMH says it contacted cybersecurity experts and law enforcement after finding it. RMH operates its point-of-sale systems isolated from the broader Applebee's network, and this notice applies only to RMH-owned Applebee's restaurants.
