Fast-food chain Arby’s has admitted that a data breach may have impacted more than 355,000 credit and debit cards.

The malware attack was similar to attacks on Target and Home Depot, Krebs on Security notes.

The breach occurred between Oct. 25 and Jan. 19 – the company stresses that it only affects company owned restaurants, not its franchises.

Arby’s has 3,330 stores nationwide, and approximately one third of those locations are owned by the company.

Arby’s is warning customers to keep an eye on their credit and debit card statements for unauthorized activity.

The company says it learned about the breach in mid-January, but the FBI asked it to avoid going public.
