Chipotle Mexican Grill is investigating "unauthorized activity" on customers' credit cards used at all Chipotle restaurants nationwide between late March and mid-April.

According to Fortune, CFO Jack Hartung told Wall Street analysts during an investor presentation that the company's payment processing system was hacked.

A spokesperson for Chipotle said they believe the data breach is over and have now increased cyber security.

The company announced this week that unauthorized activity was detected on the network that supports payment processing.

The company has set up a website where it will post updates for customers.

He said that Chipotle had implemented additional security measures and were working with a cybersecurity firm, law enforcement and the payment processor to address the matter.

The transactions took place between March 24 and April 18.

Officials said because their investigation is ongoing, complete findings are not available and it is too early to provide further details on the investigation. Hartung did promise that the company will notify customers who may have been affected by the breach once it learns more about specific restaurants that may have been affected and the exact timeframe for each.

Chipotle emphasized that customers should "closely monitor" their bank statements for any unauthorized charges.
