    I guess someone else doesn't like Dominos as well.

    Cyber criminals have reportedly hacked into the servers of Domino's Pizza France and Belgium, and downloaded over 600,000 customer records.

    The data includes customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords and delivery instructions – as well as their favourite pizza toppings – according to the hacker organisation known as Rex Mundi.


    The hackers are now demanding a ransom of €30,000 (£24,000) ($32,500 US) to release the data. If Domino's does not pay the ransom by 20:00 CET tonight, they say they will post the entirety of the data in their possession on the Internet

    $32,500? Not very ambitious, are they?

    To bad they didn't demand the ransom to be paid in thirty minutes or less.

    Another day, another major internet security breach...

    Yeah, that's like 5¢ for every person they stole data from.
    The inevitable lawsuit against Dominoes for poor cyber security will no doubt demand more money than that.

    This is the most non-threatening ransom ever.

    At worst those people may recieve some crank calls or fake deliveries. Hell, even the ransom itself is like "yeah this isn't the most valuable information, so, like $32,000 would be cool."

    These guys should be easy to catch, just find the guy who bought that $32,500 sports car.

    This reminds me of the scene in Austin Powers where he asks for 1 million dollars.

    Don't members have saved credit card details on the website? That would be my major concern.

    I'm equally concerned about Domino's security if the hackers got hold of their passwords - if they were storing passwords as plain text on their server, then that's a schoolboy error.

    Hell, that's the kind of piss-poor security I'd expect from FunPub.
