Wawa, a Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain, said thousands of its customers' debit and credit card information may have been collected from its payment processing servers during a data breach, CNBC reports.

The state of play: The breach was first discovered on Dec. 10 and contained on Dec. 12, but the malware could have been scooping up data as early as March 4, per CNBC.

  • The company said in a statement all its locations were potentially affected, but did not know the number of customers. Wawa has 850 locations, according to CNBC.
  • Wawa is offering customers free credit card monitoring and identity theft prevention services as a result, CNBC notes.
