Dairy Queen says nearly 400 of its restaurants across the country were affected by malware that found its way on to credit card terminals.

Those locations include stores in Bowling Green, Owensboro, Somerset, Beaver Dam, Danville, Central City, Russellville and Versailles along with restaurants in Evansville and New Albany, Ind.

The company says the data breach happened mainly during the month of August and affected names, credit card numbers and expiration dates.  But Dairy Queen says PIN numbers were not affected. 

The company says the malware has been removed and no longer poses a threat to customers’ data.
