What about 2021 and data breaches? It appears that hackers have become hyperactive amid the pandemic and are breaching the security of major companies such as Facebook, Mobikwik, and LinkedIn. Now, according to recent reports, confidential information of Domino’s India customers and employees, including credit card numbers, phone numbers and names, has allegedly been leaked on the dark web.
Although nothing is substantial, as of now, Alon Gal, the CTO of cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock, shared a tweet about the Domino’s India data breach. According to the tweet, a “Threat actor” has supposedly hacked into Dominos India database and stole 13 TB of data. You can see the tweet below:

The leaked data includes sensitive information for millions of customers, including details close to Rs 18 million orders, Rs 10 lakh credit cards, real names, addresses, email IDs and payment details. Apart from these, the data also supposedly includes Dominos India internal file data from 2015 to 2021. This even includes the personal information of around 250 employees, according to the screenshots.
The hacker also reportedly aims to build a search system for the 13 TB database to query the leaked data. Furthermore, according to Gal, the hacker is selling the data for around 10 BTC, which translates to $ 569,000 or Rs 4.25 crore considering the current market rate of Bitcoin.
Following the alleged data breach, Gadgets 360 approached Dominos India to comment on the subject. According to a company spokesperson, Jubilant Foodworks, which runs the Dominos franchise in India, Srilanka and Bangladesh, has denied the data breach. However, according to the statement, the company experienced “An information security incident recently”.
“No data related to the financial information of any person was accessed and the incident has not had any operational or commercial impact. As a policy, we do not store financial details or credit card details of our customers, so such information has not been compromised.”Added the spokesperson.
“Our team of experts is investigating the matter and we have taken the necessary actions to contain the incident,” the statement added more. With this in mind, we suggest that you reset your password in the Domino’s India app (Android, ios) immediately.
