stephendavion (2872091) writes Hackers who compromised the servers of Domino's Pizza have demanded a ransom of €30,000 or they will publish the records of more than 600,000 customers – including their favourite toppings. "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," wrote Rex Mundi [the name the perpetrators go by]. "And boy, did we find some juicy stuff in there!"

Hackers Ransom European Domino's Customer Data (including Favourite Toppings)

  • Yes, it's a British article, but they put "[sic]" in a quote that contains "favorite" as opposed to "favourite", I guess without taking into account that the perpetrators might be American. On the other hand, while typing this post in Chrome, the browser marked "favourite" as a misspelling :-)

      It's not improper use, all it means is that it has been transcribed exactly as written. It doesn't matter if the original authors are American, it's there to inform the intended readership that the potentially unexpected spelling is as per the original text.

      If you're going to be a grammar pedant at least get it right.

        • Yes, but:

          The notation's usual purpose is to inform the reader that any errors or apparent errors in the transcribed material do not arise from errors in the course of the transcription, and the errors have been repeated intentionally, i.e., that they are reproduced exactly as set down by the original writer or printer.

    And here I thought the Europeans had a much richer food history than to have actually ever ordered pizza from Domino's.

    You're not that far from where pizza was invented, surely you can do better than that.

      Yeah, but Dorcia doesn't deliver, and isn't open at 1am. Plus, it's a safer gamble than a prawn biryani.

        Pizza (of a sort) was invented in Palestine when the Roman soldiers couldn't get levened bread during Passover. Granted, it wasn't much like the modern pizza.

        Perhaps the modern pizza was invented in Chicago. Certainly one variety has that name.

    • by Thanshin (1188877)

      In most of what I've known of Europe, there are two kinds of pizza:
      - Italian restaurant pizza: The one that will be nice if the restaurant is ok and only really good if the restaurant is actually in Italia.
      - Fast food pizza: Domino's, Pizza hut, etc. One interesting thing about fast food pizza is that a lot of people prefer the American brands, with thicker, greasier pizzas. The other interesting thing about fast food pizza is that it bears little resemblance to actual pizza.

        just as I enjoy true hamburgers and the meat sandwich you can eat at a McDonald's.

        *shudder* Oh, wow ... that stuff is just nasty.

        Got completely disgusted by that over a decade ago. Couldn't possibly do it again.

          Well, if you are sick of living, you can try the purveyors of pretty much the best damn burger you will ever have: at Five Guys. You will still feel like crap afterwards, probably because the fries they give you are enough to clog the arteries of an olympic marathoner, but sooooo gooooood... And no, I have no affiliation with them. They seem to be all over the US and also in Canada.

      • Around here, there's a third category, the middle eastern-owned pizzeria. They make decent enough pizzas that are completely indistinguishable from the ones at competing pizzerias, since they all get their ingredients from the same place. And you can get a cheap greasy kebab to go with it.

        I'm firmly in the "Italians make the best pizzas" camp, and I firmly believe that my favorite pizzeria is one of the best in the world. Run by Italians, with a proper wood-fired oven, a TV that plays nothing but Italian so

        As a brit with an italian SO, that's about the size of it. In London at least there are lots of good (and some great) pizzerias, almost all of which are owned and run by italians. The superb Franco Manca in Brixton is quite probably the best pizza I've ever had, and this includes some truly excellent pizza restaurants in and around Naples (pizza napoli is, to me, the only style of pizza worth emulating; the SO is from rome and dislikes the "local" style of pizza as well). That said, they're also one of the

      Technically, a pizza is just a flatbread. And that's in Italian, for the Greek name for flatbread is... pita. (Granted, the bread is actually made with different ingredients, so Italian pizza and Greek pita are not substitutable - but they do refer to flatbread).

      It was the Italian immigrants in Chicago tha

    or the names of those sick and twisted anchovy lovers will be revealed to the world, and where will they hide their faces then?

  • Unless Domino's is offering baby seal chunks and fried panda bear slices as toppings, I'm no sure how this is worth ten cents, let alone what they are asking for. Other than the embarrassment of having inadequate security. But that's already out of the bag.

    Whatever they want, give it to them, because if your personal information is among their ransom then its all over. It doesnt matter what your toppings were, or when you ordered, or even why. Europe, and all the world, will know you to have intentionally and willfully placed an order for the worst american export since George Bush. Rumours will spread about your love for country music and before you know it, your allegance to nascar, cold budweiser, and jean shorts will be all but fact in the minds of your brethren.

    • Are you kidding?! That would make him hip and cool... he's probably funding the hackers in that scenario.
  • If they pay the ransom or not the data is still compromised and customer will have to be notified.

    And if so, could it be circular? I.e. interesting people in more non-traditional toppings could influence their views on non-traditional topics...?
