Even Warren Buffett Isn’t Safe From Security Breaches

Warren Buffett & Carlyle CEO David Rubenstein Discussion At DC Eco Club

No, (as for as we know) Warren Buffett’s financial information wasn’t hacked, nor was his company Berkshire Hathaway. But one of Berkshire’s holdings, the Dairy Queen, has been yet another retailer in the growing list of those that have had customer information stolen by cybercriminals. Target and Home Depot admitted that thousands of customers had their card data stolen this summer. Dairy Queen reported that several hundred locations in 46 states, including an Orange Julius store, have been hacked, reports Reuters.

The malware infected computers at 395 of its 4, 5000 location and retrieved card numbers, names and expiration dates, but it is uncertain whether PIN or social security numbers were taken. John Gainor, CEO of Dairy Queen, said, “We are committed to working with and supporting our affected DQ and Orange Julius franchise owners to address the incident.”
