Hackers have reportedly stolen data of more than 600,000 Domino’s Pizza customers. A group of hackers demand €30,000 before next Monday or they will make captured data public. The hacker group goes by the name Rex Mundi and claims to have hacked the websites of Domino’s Pizza in France and Belgium. They’ve announced their hack in a Tweet and disclosed further details in an anonymous text file. In the statement they write, “We downloaded over 592,000 customer records (including passwords) from French customers and over 58,000 records from Belgian ones. That’s over six hundred thousand records, which include the customers’ full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions. (Oh, and their favorite pizza topping as well, because why not).”

Hackers claim to have swiped the passwords of 650,000 Domino’s Pizza customers in France and Belgium, threatening to publish them if €30,000 (£23,892) ransom is not paid. The group, known as Rex Mundi, said in a post to dpaste.de it had gained access to a vulnerable customer database shared by Domino’s France and Domino’s Belgium. “We downloaded over 592,000 customer records (including passwords) from French customers and over 58,000 records from Belgian ones … [including] the customers’ full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions. (Oh, and their favorite pizza topping as well, because why not),” they said. Rex Mundi gave a deadline of 8pm CET tonight (7pm BST) for Dominos to pay up, or the group “will post the entirety of the data in [its] possession on the internet”. The group also took to Twitter to publicise the alleged hack and advise French customers to speak to their lawyers. Domino’s France issued a statement through its own Twitter account saying that while it does encrypt all commercial data, the hackers it has “fallen victim to are professionals … [so] it is probable they will have been able to decode the cryptographic system for the passwords”.
