Following the Air India hack, the latest one is the Dominos Data Hack, where the pizza delivery chain has suffered a massive data breach. The data breach contained sensitive information, including the GPS location and the mobile numbers of nearly 18 crore users. The stolen data had been made available for sale on the dark web.
Rajshekhar Rajaharia, a cybersecurity researcher, first flagged the Dominos data hack. He had stated that the stolen data of the 18 crore users had gone public.
“Hacker created a search engine on Dark Web. If you have ever ordered @dominos_india online, your data might be leaked. Data include Name, Email, Mobile, GPS Location etc.,” Rajaharia tweeted.
He had further mentioned that the hacker had also created a search engine for easy access to the company’s stolen database. The people are continuously misusing the feature.
“The worst part of this alleged breach is that people are using this data to spy on people. Anybody can easily search any mobile number and can check a person’s past locations with date and time. This seems like a real threat to our privacy,” Rajaharia said on Twitter.
Dominos India is owned by Jubilant FoodWorks, who has eventually admitted regarding the Dominos Data Hack. The company has claimed that the financial information of the users is entirely safe.
“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 company said in a statement.
This is for the second time that Dominos data hack has occurred in two months. Back in April, several sensitive information like the customers’ names, email IDs, contact number, credit card details, addresses etc., had been leaked. The recent leak bears information having details of over 10 lakh credit cards and over 18 crores of order.
