A nationwide data breach that targeted hundreds of Chipotle restaurants has hit several Triangle-area locations, the company reported Friday.

Officials said they found a malware that was designed to access the credit and debit card information of customers at the restaurant's register.

The malware searched for track data, which can tell the cardholder's name, card number, expiration date, and internal verification code.

The information is read from a magnetic stripe as the card is swiped.

According to the company, the affected transaction occurred in March and April of 2017.
