Jimmy John's believes someone stole log-in credentials and remotely installed malware on machines used to swipe credit cards. Some customers' credit card numbers, expiration dates, verification codes and names were stolen between June 16 and Sept. 15, the company said.

The privately held company said it discovered the problem on July 30.

Jimmy John's said it believes its security has been restored by installing encrypted swipe machines and taking other steps.

Jimmy John's has more than 2,000 locations.
