Chipotle, a nationwide restaurant chain, reported that two of its Champaign locations were involved in a massive data breach this past March and April.

The Chipotle at 903 W. Anthony Dr. was vulnerable to hackers from March 26 to April 18. The location at 528 E. Green St. was breached from March 25 to April 18.

The malware used was able to access customers’ cardholder names, card numbers, expiration dates and internal verification codes, said Chipotle.

Chipotle encourages customers to check their credit card statements in order to look for any suspicious activity and to report any unauthorized statements.
