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.
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.
