Pizza chain Dominos announced that its parent company, Jubilant Foodworks, witnessed an information security incident in March that clarified the data leak of 180 million order data.
Dominos denied the customer’s financial data was leaked. “As a policy, Domino’s does not store user financial information such as full credit card numbers, CVV, passwords, etc., and therefore such information has not been compromised,” the company said in an email. It has hired an external agency to assess the impact of the data protection breach.
The 13 terabytes of data that were leaked had phone numbers, emails, addresses, payment details, including 1 million credit card details Twitter Contributions from Alon Gal, the Israel-based co-founder and chief executive Technology Cybercrime Intelligence Officer Hudson Rock. The data was on sale online for $ 550,000, he said.
