Swiss Chalet, Harvey’s, East Side Mario’s restaurant chain hit by malware outbreak

Company says it learned of the outbreak on Friday.


VAUGHAN, Ont.—Recipe Unlimited Corp. says some of its Swiss Chalet, Harvey’s, East Side Mario’s and other restaurants are experiencing a partial network outage after a malware outbreak.

The company says it learned of the outbreak on Friday and as a precaution took a number of its systems offline and suspended internet access to affected locations.

Some restaurants have been unable to process credit and debit card transactions as a result, though all of them can manually process credit card charges.

A small number of restaurants have temporarily closed.

The company says it’s continuing to work with security experts to resolve the situation.

It did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
