A group called Rex Mundi has claimed to have hacked into Domino’s Pizza’s European headquarters to steal more than 650,000 passwords of French and Belgium customers. The group is demanding 30,000 euro ($40,000+ U.S.) by 8 p.m. tonight or it will publish the information online.
Domino’s Netherlands executive Andre ten Wolde told a Dutch newspaper that the ransom would not be paid, according to the Daily Mail. Although customer information including names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords and email addresses was seized, Wolde contends no financial data was compromised.
The incident has been reported to the French police. The pizza chain’s customers are being advised to change their passwords.
