Select Restaurants, owner and operator of several upscale eateries found throughout the United States, is the latest victim of a point-of-sale breach.

Among the restaurants impacted include: Boston’s Top of the Hub; Parker’s Lighthouse in Long Beach, Calif.; the Rusty Scupper in Baltimore, Md.; Parkers Blue Ash Tavern in Cincinnati; Parkers’ Restaurant & Bar in Downers Grove, Ill.; Winberie’s Restaurant & Bar with locations in Oak Park, Ill. and Princeton and Summit, New Jersey; and Black Powder Tavern in Valley Forge, Pa.

Security expert Brian Krebs claims that the likely vector for the hack is Select’s PoS Vendor, 24x7 Hospitality Technology. In a letter he obtained 24x7’s CEO, Krebs found that hackers had access to all of Select’s PoS systems from late October 2016 till mid-January 2017. The letter went on the claim that the systems were hacked by a “sophisticated network intrusion through a remote access application.”

24x7 said the hackers executed the PoSeidon malware that’s designed to siphon card data when cards are swiped at an infected cash register.

Select has yet to comment on the breach and nothing is known about how many patrons are impacted or the number of cards compromised.

Restaurants looking to protect themselves from falling victim to a PoS breach need to implement sophisticated monitoring solutions like File Integrity Monitoring to defend against malware and insider threats to card and customer data. This also is the NNT solution to Requirement 11: 11.1, 11.4, and 11.5 of the PCI DSS V3.2 standard.
