More than 200,000 payment card accounts have been compromised in a data breach at Restaurant Depot, a food service wholesaler, and the fraudsters are believed to be based in Russia, says Stanley Fleishman, CEO.

Forensic investigators hired by the wholesaler determined hackers were able to obtain magnetic stripe card credentials via the Internet by accessing Restaurant Depot's network, the company reports. The information compromised was from credit and debit cards used at its wholesale outlets from Sept. 21 though Nov. 18.

Restaurant Depot, based in Queens, New York, has 89 locations throughout the U.S.

A breach notification letter was mailed out Nov. 25 to more than 200,000 affected customers, detailing the compromised information that was taken, including names of cardholders, credit or debit card numbers, card expiration dates and verification codes.
