Domino’s India data fell into the hands of hackers earlier this month. The stolen data from the Indian franchise business of Domino’s Pizza Inc. is reportedly going for 10 Bitcoins on the dark web.
10 BTC for 13 Terabytes of Indian Franchise Business of Domino’s Pizza Inc.’s Data
The hackers seem not to be asking much out of Domino’s India data breach. As expected, they chose cryptocurrency as the mode of payment as if digital coins are not already receiving enough heat over being “popular on illegitimate transactions.”
The threat perpetrators announced that all the 13TB of the information would be selling for only 10 Bitcoins. Considering the current price of 1 Bitcoin is $54,775.60, one can buy the entire Domino’s India sensitive information for close to $550,000.
Alon Gal, the co-founder and CTO of Israel-based cybercrime intelligence firm Hudson Rock through his Twitter, went on to reveal the details of the data breach. Allegedly, the hackers got hold of 13 terabytes of the Indian franchise business of Domino’s Pizza Inc.’s data. The data contained information of over 250 employees and 180 million order details.
The hackers are claiming possession of customer names, addresses, email IDs, and over 1 million credit card details from the order details. The specifics of the data will be available for interested buyers on the dark web through a search portal that the cybercriminal(s) will develop.
Jubilant FoodWorks Denies Breach of Any Financial Data
However, jubilant FoodWorks, the parent company of Domino’s India, has denied that the security breach involved loss of any data pertaining to customers’ financial or address details.
A spokesperson from the firm confirmed that Jubilant FoodWorks had recently “experienced an information security incident.” He added that Domino’s India’s data breach, however, neither resulted in losing any financial information nor handicapped any operational or business processes.
The company maintains that its policy is not to store its customers’ financial details or credit card information. Thus, the hackers’ claim of access to these customer details could only be a marketing front to buyers.
