Domino’s Pizza Europe Hacked, Criminals Demand Ransom Payment


Domino’s Pizza customers in Belgium and France have been compromised, with more than 600,000 customers affected, and a cash ransom demand issued to the company.  The Rex Mundi hacker group wants £23,890 payment or the stolen information will begin to leak online.

More than 58,000 records were stolen from Domino’s Belgium, with 592,000 customer records stolen from France.  The data taken includes names, email addresses, passwords, and phone numbers, according to Domino’s – company officials said the ransom will not be paid, confirming that financial payment information wasn’t stolen in the breach.

Here is what Rex Mundi said in a statement:

“Earlier this week, we hacked our way into the servers of Domino’s Pizza France and Belgium, who happen to share the same vulnerable database.  And boy’ did we find some juicy stuff in there! We downloaded over 592,000 customer records (including passwords) from French customers and over 58,000 records from Belgian ones.”

The data theft hit independent franchise owners in just Belgium and France, while the incident has been described as an “isolated” occurrence, according to Tim McIntyre, Domino’s Vice President of Communications.  The information was encrypted, but the hackers appear to be well-organized and should be able to decode all stolen data.

The silver lining is that no payment information was taken, but it’s never good when personal customer data is stolen in a breach.

Just a Pizza Delivery… On a Train?

Apparently you can get your pizza delivered everywhere nowadays. From ordering it at home, at work, even in a park might be a possible ordering location. However, a comedian apparently went further than that and ordered it on a train.

Though not an actual joke, comedian Chris Ramsey ordered the pizza half-way through his train journey back home, which inevitable became a Twitter phenomenon. The ordering nearly stopped before it began, as of course it was considered by most to be a joke. However, Domino’s Pizza did deliver its order to the customer even if it meant to bring it on the train. Furthermore, they insisted to add extra pizzas for everyone on the train to enjoy.

It seems that even support from fellow comedians were seen between the flood of Twitter comments. It is however to be expected since a delivery such as this one cannot be seen every day.

Finally, the pizza arrived and everyone was excited. As promised in the tweets, Chris did take a selfie with the delivery guy, which apparently was as excited as Chris was.

It is not a common opportunity to see such excitement in delivering a pizza on a train, but by the looks of it people are extremely excited to be served anywhere and everywhere. Who knows, maybe train companies will even offer pizza delivery as an option in the near future.
