Will Domino’s Pizza have to pay hackers holding it to ransom €30,000 today?

A mysterious group known as Rex Mundi (Latin for “king of the world”) is blackmailing Domino’s Pizza to the tune of €30,000, or else it says it will release more than 600,000 customer records.

The group downloaded the data from the company’s French and Belgian websites. It has threatened to publish all the data unless it receives €30,000 by the end of today.

The stolen data is believed to include names, email addresses, phone numbers and pizza toppings (the hackers explained the toppings theft thus: “because why not”).

Domino’s said that bank account and credit card details have not been stolen.

Hackers Rex Mundi posted about the data theft earlier this week on online message board dpaste.de. The post has now been removed, but Sky News has a copy of it. The post said:

“Earlier this week, we hacked our way into the servers of Domino’s Pizza France and Belgium, who happen to share the same vulnerable database.

“And boy, did we find some juicy stuff in there! We downloaded over 592,000 customer records (including passwords) from French customers and over 58,000 records from Belgian ones.

“That’s over six hundred thousand records, which include the customers’ full names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions. (Oh, and their favorite pizza topping as well, because why not).”

The hacking group has been tweeting from @RexMundi_Anon about the Domino’s attack for the past few days.
