Thursday, Wendy's officials announced that hackers stole customers' credit and debit card information from 1,025  restaurants, far more than it originally thought.

Wendy's Co. urged customers to check their accounts for any fraudulent purchases.

The company is also offering free one-year credit monitoring to people who paid with a card at any of those locations.
