The stolen details are now being sold in a cyber thief's online bazaar called Joker's Stash, though Krebs said it is unclear if all the details are from the Sonic Drive-In breach or include those swiped from other companies.

Sonic ( SONC ), the drive-in burger chain known for its roller-skating carhops, is the latest target of hackers seeking consumers' credit-card accounts. Some of the cards from the batch were found to be recently used at Sonic locations, according to Krebs.
