|

Domino's India, a successful pizza delivery chain, is said to have suffered a data breach involving internal company records dating back seven years, personal information belonging to over 250 employees, customer information from over 18 crore food orders, and over 10 lakh credit cards saved during checkout and payments.

 

Sourajeet Majumder discovered the violation and told Domino's India and Cert-In, among other authorities, about it.

Domino's India Data Leak: 10 Lakh Credit Cards Information on Sale?
The database is still active on a dark web cyber raid site, according to Majumder, and the hackers have requested a ransom of 50 BTC (roughly Rs 21.3 crore as of publishing) from Domino's India if they don't want their data sold, according to News18 report.

Commenting on the situation, Domino's India has confirmed that no personal information of its customers has been compromised. The complete sentence is as follows:

Jubilant FoodWorks experienced an information security incident recently. No data pertaining to the financial information of any person was accessed and the incident has not resulted in any operational or business impact. As a policy we do not store financial details or credit card data of our customers, thus no such information has been compromised. Our team of experts is investigating the matter, and we have taken necessary actions to contain the incident.

The hackers want to sell all of the information to a single buyer. The hackers are after $550,000 (roughly Rs 4 crores) for the entire database, according to Alon Gal. The hackers also intend to create a search portal that will enable them to query the data.

Domino's India is owned by the food service company Jubilant Foodworks, which operates the Domino's Pizza franchise in India. There are 1,314 restaurants in 285 cities in the franchise's network.

Rajshekhar Rajaharia, an independent cybersecurity researcher, told IANS that he had alerted CERT-in (India's national cyber defence agency) on March 5 about the potential hack.

In the recent past, there have been a slew of hacking incidents involving Indian companies, including Bigbasket, BuyUcoin, JusPay, Upstox, and others.
