13TB worth of data, consists of customer’s name, email, mobile number, GPS location, etc. This information was brought into the limelight by cybersecurity expert and researchers Rajshekhar Rajaharia, who also mentioned that people who have access to this could easily spy on customers by checking their location, date, and time.
Jubliant Foodworks, the parent company to Domino’s, when contacted by the Mint, acknowledged the data breach but persisted that the financial details of the customers remain safe. Jubliant Foodworks also said that this security threat has not led to any operational or business impact.
“Our team of experts is investigating the matter, and we have taken necessary actions to contain the incident,” a company spokesperson at Jubliant Foodworks said.
Domino’s Hacker Earlier Hacked MobiKwik Last Month
Anton Gal, a security researcher and Chief Technology Officer of the cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock, earlier disclosed the seller is demanding 10BTC, approximately $570,000, for the entire 13TB database. Alongside the customer info, the hacker also has access to 250 odd employee information from various departments such as IT, Legal, Finance, etc.
Rajashekhar Rajaharia had also pointed out to the Business Insider that this is the same hacker who hacked MobiKwik last month. The hacker had sold that database to a reseller who has now posted it on the Dark Web. So we now know that the fate of Domino’s hack is the same, as the data has already been made public.
Multiple agencies have pointed out that the Indian companies are on the target list of many Chinese hackers. Last month’s MobiKwik hack exposed data of 3.5M users. Before that, BigBasket, Juspay and Unacademy were also attacked.
