Wendy's says more than 1,000 restaurants affected by hack
NEW YORK — Wendy's says hackers were able to steal customer's credit and debit card information at 1,025 of its U.S. restaurants, far more than it originally thought.
The hamburger chain says hackers were able to access card numbers, names, expiration dates and codes on the cards. Some customer's cards were used to make fraudulent purchases at other stores.

There are more than 5,700 U.S. Wendy's restaurants.
Wendy's said Thursday it would post a list of affected restaurants on its website. As of Thursday morning, the list wasn't posted because of "technical difficulties."
But by the afternoon, the company had posted a tool that lets users enter their state and county to see which restaurants are affected. Click here to learn if a restaurant you visited is on the list.
