Hackers ransom Domino's customer data (including favourite toppings) for €30,000
Hackers 'Rex Mundi' compromised more than 600,000 customer records from France and Belgium before posting demands on Twitter
Hackers who compromised the servers of Domino’s Pizza have demanded a ransom of €30,000 or they will publish the records of more than 600,000 customers – including their favourite toppings.
"Earlier this week, we hacked our way into the servers of Domino's Pizza France and Belgium, who happen to share the same vulnerable database," wrote Rex Mundi. "And boy, did we find some juicy stuff in there!"
If you're a @dominos_pizzafr customer, u may want to know that we have offered Domino's not to publish your data in exchange for 30,000EUR.— Rex Mundi (@RexMundi_Anon) June 13, 2014
The hackers reported downloading "over 592,000 customer records (including passwords) from French customers and over 58,000 records from Belgian ones."
They claim these include "full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions."
"Oh, and their favorite [sic] pizza topping as well, because why not," said Rex Mundi.
Domino’s France acknowledged the hack and recommended that users change their passwords, while the head of Domino’s Netherlands Andre ten Wolde told local newspaper De Standaard that "there are clear indications that something is broken on our server."
Mr ten Wolde added that the company would not be paying the ransom and assured customers that the stolen data did not include financial information.
Rex Mundi is apparently taking the stance that the breach is deserved because of Domino’s lack of security consciousness and have advised French customers to "contact them to let them know how you feel abt how they failed to secure yr data."
The hacker or hackers have warned customers that if the company doesn't pay them they will "release your data tonight."
PSA: If @dominos_pizzafr doesn't pay us tomorrow and we publish your data, u have the right to sue them. Speak to yr lawyer!— Rex Mundi (@RexMundi_Anon) June 15, 2014
A spokesperson for Domino's said: “The data hacking is isolated to the Domino’s franchise in France and Belgium, and no customer credit card or financial information was compromised.
"Domino’s customers in the UK and Republic of Ireland are not affected by this incident. The security of customer information is very important to us. We regularly test our UK website for penetration as part of the ongoing rigorous checks and continual routine maintenance of our online operations.”
