RMH says they believe unauthorized software was placed on certain cash registers. In all, more than 100 RMH-owned locations were reportedly compromised.

While the dates when the breach may have occurred varied for individual stores, all three northeast Kansas ones stretched from December 6, 2017 – January 2, 2018.

According to RMH, certain guests’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes could have been stolen. Payments made online or using self-pay tabletop devices were not affected, they noted.

On its website detailing the breach, the company offered tips on how customers can protect themselves.
