    Wendy's says hackers were able to steal customers' credit and debit card information at 1,025 of its U.S. restaurants, far more than it originally thought.

    The hamburger chain says hackers were able to access card numbers, names, expiration dates and codes on the cards. Some customers' cards were used to make fraudulent purchases at other stores.

    There are more than 5,700 Wendy's restaurants in the U.S.
