Cyber Security Breach Affects Panera Customers

April 03, 2018 - 8:34 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Noted cyber-security writer Brian Krebs claims that St. Louis-based Panera Bread is guilty of a security breach.

He reports that for at least eight months customer information was up for grabs on the Panera website thanks to a flaw in the system.

Krebs says anyone who knew where to look could find customer names, email addresses, birthdays -- even the last four digits of payment cards.

Panera released a statement saying the company takes data security very seriously, adding that the issue has already been resolved.

The company went on to say there's no evidence of a large number of records being accessed via their website.
