Pizza Hut identifies security breach after customers complain of fraud
After Pizza Hut has suffered a data breach and the perpetrators got away with sensitive credit card information. Pizza Hut failed to let customer knows. Leaving them vulnerable to fraud. It took Pizza Hut 2 weeks after they realized they had been hacked to let customers know.
“Pizza Hut has recently identified a temporary security intrusion that occurred on our website,” the company wrote in the email.
“We have learned that the information of some customers who visited our website or mobile application during an approximately 28-hour period (from the morning of October 1, 2017, through midday on October 2, 2017) and subsequently placed an order may have been compromised.
“Pizza Hut identified the security intrusion quickly and took immediate action to halt it,” the company added. “The security intrusion at issue impacted a small percentage of our customers and we estimate that less than one percent of the visits to our website over the course of the relevant week were affected.”
“The security of our online ordering system has not been compromised in any way, and our customers can continue to order online in the knowledge the ordering system is secure,” Houston said. “During the current official investigation with relevant authorities, no further comment will be made by Pizza Hut.”
From the coveration on Twitter about this, is seems that although Pizza Hut have now informed customers about the breach. It may be too late…
Yay! My tweet shaming of a company has made it to slashdot, the Miami Harold, and beyond! https://t.co/mNW6kNHYl7
