Restaurant Reports Website Hack
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIANovember 7, 2012
Pizza Hut Australia has confirmed a layer of its website has been hacked, Gizmodo reports. The company’s general manager says it has notified the Office of the Australian Privacy Commissioner and is working with its website provider to conduct an investigation. Despite hackers’ claims in a message to Pizza Hut that they took 240,000 Australian customers’ credit cards, the company says “absolutely no credit card information was stolen and there is no need for concern regarding credit cards.” The report states that, per PCI-DSS rules, credit card numbers were sent to a third party to process and store transactions.
