Arby’s Whacked with More Data Breach Class Action Lawsuits

Robinson+Cole Data Privacy + Security Insider

As we previously reported, Arby’s was hit with malware that infected over 1,000 of its fast food locations throughout the U.S. between October 25, 2016, and January 19, 2017, and was hit with multiple class action suits over the data breach [view recent post].

After it reported the breach, several class action lawsuits were filed against it alleging “inadequate data security measures” to protect the credit and debit card information of over 355,000 customers.

The newest cases have been filed by three different credit unions, a bank, and a couple who purchased food at a Wendy’s in Connecticut.

The couple alleges that a month after the data breach, thousands of dollars in unauthorized charges were racked up on their credit card. As a result, they allege they were harmed by losing access to their account funds, missing payments, were unable to use the credit card until a replacement card was provided, and not being able to use reward points and cash-back rewards. They allege breach of implied contract, violations of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act and negligence.
