Nearly 600,000 Clients Exposed in Domino’s Breach

The records of 600,000 customers of pizza chain Domino’s in France and Belgium are exploited by hackers asking for money to restore sensitive information, according to threatpost.com.

The stolen information, mainly from France, contains customers’ full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions.

Rex Mundi, the hacking group behind the breach, has contacted the French franchise and demanded 30,000 EUR to return the data and reveal helpful information about the company’s security weaknesses. Unless the company agrees, the group says it will make the information public.

Domino’s does not plan to pay, Tim McIntyre, Domino’s vice president, told Threat Post. The breach affects only customers from France and Belgium, he added.

“No customer credit card or financial information was compromised, as their system is a bit outdated and does not accept credit card orders,” McIntyre said. “Plans were already in place to have the system roll over to the platform we use in the U.S. This does not affect any market outside of France and Belgium. The site has been secured.”

Domino's Pizza is an American restaurant chain with over 11,000 stores worldwide, including 229 in France, 24 in Belgium and around 5,000 in the United States.
