A Dairy Queen breach has exposed the credit card info of customers at nearly 400 of the ice cream franchise's stores.

According to The Associated Press, the company said Thursday that hackers may have gained access to customer names, credit and debit card numbers and expiration dates at 395 stores between August and October. The company said it has fixed the malware problem.

International Dairy Queen Inc. has about 4,500 franchised stores in the U.S. It's also the parent of the Orange Julius chain, and one stand-alone Orange Julius store was breached.

Dairy Queen said there's no evidence Social Security numbers, card PIN numbers, or email addresses were stolen.

The Edina, Minnesota-based company, which is owned by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc., is offering customers free identity repair services.

Major retailers including Home Depot, Target, and Michael's have been the target of cyberattacks in the past year.
