The intruder used the account credentials of a third-party vendor to access computer systems, according to Dairy Queen, which said it hired forensic experts to review the breach. “We are committed to working with and supporting our affected DQ and Orange Julius franchise owners to address this incident,” John Gainor, chief executive officer of Dairy Queen, said in a statement.
