Cybercrime watch: Now they're after your toppings

16 June 2014

domlogocolor Those pesky cyber criminals have been at it again.

This time around, notorious bandits Rex Mundi apparently hacked into the servers of Domino's Pizza in France and Belgium, downloading 600,000 customer records.

These records include names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, passwords, delivery instructions and what sort of base and toppings they prefer too.

The crims are now demanding a ransom of €30,000 (£24,000) to give the data back. If Domino's don't pay them by 8pm this evening, then they'll upload all the info for the public to see.

In a world where Isis can round up and massacre a load of soldiers, hacking Domino's and threatening them seems to suggest some form of perspective may be required.

Domino's haven't yet responded to the hacker's demands, perhaps believing them to be a load of cheeky idiots having a laugh.

Andre ten Wold, chief exec of Domino's Pizza, told Dutch newspaper De Standaard that the ransom demand would not be paid, and that a complaint had been filed with a court in Paris.

"There are clear indications that something is broken on our server. The information contained in them is protected," he said. "Financial data, such as credit cards, has not been stolen."

Rex Mundi have form, having done similar with US loan company Americash Advance and Belgian hosting firm Alfa Hosting.

Let's see if Domino's pay up, or if they catch them crims. Will someone SERVE up a SLICE of justice etc?
