Hackers have stolen data on more than 600,000 Domino's Pizza Inc customers, the pizza delivery company said, and an anonymous Twitter user threatened to publish the data unless the company pays a cash ransom.
Customer names, delivery addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and passwords were taken from a server used in an online ordering system that the company is in the process of replacing, Dominos spokesman Chris Brandon said on Monday.
A Tweet directed at Domino's customers through an account of somebody listed as "Rex Mundi" said hackers would publish the customer data on the Internet unless the company pays $40,800, according to an article in The Telegraph.
Brandon said he was not familiar with the ransom demands, but that the company would not be making any such payment.
