Ice cream headache as black hat hacks sack Dairy Queen

By Darren Pauli,


Ice cream mogul Dairy Queen appears to have been breached with hackers likely stealing credit cards from some of its many US stores.

The chilling news comes from sources within the US banking sector who separately told cyber-crime prober Brian Krebs that fraudulent transactions on credit cards appeared to have stemmed from a breach at the company.


Dairy Queen admitted the US Secret Service had been in touch after initial waffle claiming it had no evidence of a breach.

Communications director Dean Peters has since said it was difficult to determine if breaches occurred at any of the franchised stores which were independent and not required to report security lapses.
