ORLANDO, Fla. - Chipotle Mexican Grill is ramping up its security measures after hackers using malware stole customer payment information in March.
On Friday, the restaurant chain announced that most of its 2,249 restaurants were affected, company spokesman Chris Arnold said.
According to the chain’s website, the breach happened between March 24 and April 18.
Malware collected credit card numbers, names, expiration dates and the verification code each time the card's magnetic strip was swiped.

Chipotle customer Hayden Jackson said he spends a lot of money at the restaurant chain and was shocked by the scope of the hacking.
"It's kind of surprising, because, I mean, I eat here every day," he said. "It's one of my favorite spots to go.
"(I'm) definitely double-thinking it now."
If he does come back, Jackson said he would be paying with cash.
"Anyone would be concerned, really," he said. "If something like that were to happen. So, I just hope they fix it soon and not a lot of people lose money or get their stuff hacked into."
