A fast food chain says seven of its restaurants on the Central and South Coast are among the more than one thousand outlets impacted by cyberattacks, during which credit and debit card information of customers may have been stolen.

Officials with Wendy’s say their two locations in Camarillo, as well as restaurants in Ventura, Oxnard, Goleta, Lompoc, and Paso Robles were all affected. The attacks on the stores in our region accessed data from card purchases between mid-January and early June.

Wendy’s is offering customers one year of free credit monitoring, and identity restoration services for those impacted.

The cyber break-in affected both company owned, and franchisee restaurants across the country. The breach has been closed, but the company is investigating how the attack occurred to try to prevent future incidents.
