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

Crime 100

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!"

But now they have a list of anyone dumb enough to eat the "pizza" they serve there. These people are also more than likely dumb enough to buy penis pills or send money to Nigerian princes, so this is a good list for the hackers.

Improper use of [sic] in TFA (1, Funny)

aviators99 (895782) | about 3 months ago | (#47253305)

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 :-)

Re:Improper use of [sic] in TFA (3, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | about 3 months ago | (#47253383)

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:

No because you're posting on Slashdot which has an English language audience, and most of those words have a shared spelling across all versions of English and were correctly used, so there's nothing potentially unexpected about them to justify [sic]ing them.

He didn't say good pizza, just where pizza was invented. If you believe Wikipedia, it's Italy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P... [wikipedia.org]

Of course, most documentaries I've seen on Pizza suggest it was invented in New York City by Italian immigrants. Whatever you believe, it wasn't invented in Chicago.

As someone who lives in Ann Arbor, MI I can assure you that most of the pizza chains in the US started in Michigan and Dominos is not pizza.

It's Italy. Which makes sense, since the Mediterranean and near-east are known for flatbread, even if some of the toppings we put on it today originated in the US (like pineapple).

Also the word "soccer" was coined in the UK, not the US. We just like to take credit for everything, apparently.

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.

Re:Sad ... (1)

Thanshin (1188877) | about 3 months ago | (#47253527)

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.

When you've got a dish with three core ingredients: mass, cheese and tomato; and you change all three to a different mass, a different cheese and some kind of red paste, it's a different dish.

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

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...

Re:Sad ... (1)

KozmoStevnNaut (630146) | about 3 months ago | (#47254513)

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 soccer matches, surprisingly good and affordable Italian wine for sale and a uniquely Italian "hands waving above the head, prego prego, ciao, buona sera" atmosphere. A pizza always takes "20 minutti", no matter how busy the place is.

Re:Sad ... (2)

MrNemesis (587188) | about 3 months ago | (#47254583)

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 few places in London where you can consistently get proper fresh mozarella (I can virtually guarantee it's a completely different beast to all the mozzarella you've ever had). Residents of Campania will rarely eat a mozarella more than a day old.

Never been too keen on the other styles of pizza - as you mention, I find chicago style too bready and too greasy and bears quite a resemblance to pizza sicilia. Pizza romana/lazio is, once again, too thick for me. Sure, there's plenty of places that do perfectly passable thick-crust pizzas but not really to my taste. When I eat pizza I want to taste the ingredients, not bread.

And then you have places like pizza hut and domino's. Not only do they have a heavy, pre-cooked breadlike crust but they also use heavily processed ingredients, and unsurprisingly they're very popular with people who are more used to the taste of processed foods and ready meals than people who make pizza with fresh ingredients. Given that they don't require fresh food and can be easily thrown together and into an oven, they're also ubiquitous and cheap since they're so much easier to store and prepare and so many people think of this as pizza than the traditional styles.

That said, we're snobby enough to keep a sourdough culture in the fridge so we can throw some pizza dough together and have a passable pizza from scratch within an hour if we like. Damn, I'm hungry now.

Re:Sad ... (0)

It "bears little resemblance" because they use a different cheese and tomato sauce recipe? Seems to me they share many things in common. A sandwich would bear little resemblance to a pizza. But Italian pizzas vs. New York pizzas are simply different notes of the same tune.

Re:Sad ... (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 3 months ago | (#47255323)

My most hated thing with pizzas is really tomatoey pizzas. I HATE the taste of tomato so much.
A good pizza will merge the taste of tomato with other ingredients to create something that doesn't exist in nature, a glorious taste.
Tomatoes. Eugh.
Likewise with general sauces used in things. Oh, and Mayo. Disgusting things, both of them.

Making a pizza that just tastes like tomato is so awful. It is so weak and easy. And awful. Oh yes, I mentioned awful.
Feels so damn lazy.

Also, you forgot the 3rd type of pizza, DIY homemade pizza from leftovers.
What's that? Got some bread that hasn't been eaten? Going to go off soon?

Sadly, this is what happened when France didn't want to join the coalition of the willing [wikipedia.org] with Bush and he was in full-on screeching "you're either with us or you're against us".

A Canadian politician got into trouble for calling it the coalition of idiots [bloomberg.com] .

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 that decided to make American pizza based on what bread they had available at the time, resulting in the good ol' American favorite.

All of which are completely different food items. I had real Italian pizza in Italy, and I loved it (fresh made!). But it doesn't mean I can't like American pizza either - both are really quite different. Though, it has ruined my appetite for American "thin crust" pizza - the Italians make it with a dough that's firm, but not rock hard after baking that really makes it nice. (And ignoring the places where it ends up like pizza stuff on a cracker, ugh).

Then again, there are enough American expats and tourists in Europe that the database could be filled up with Americans, Canadians, and other people who grew up with American pizza just missing a taste of home.

Hell, there are McDonalds in Europe as well, but not as many of them. I just figured that it was tourists and expats wanting a taste of home.

I'm sure this is the type of info that was recovered.

And especially not the "internal" remarks.

I worked long at the call center for an ISP. Or, as we called it, the "nuts' favorite call in show". We made it a game to come up with fitting nicknames for pretty much every halfway regular caller. Because, well, the regular callers are also usually the more obnoxious ones. Part of it sounded like the lineup for Dick Tracy villains. We had the "mumbler", the "breather", the "shrill bimbo", the "Kazakh" (at first we thought he's Russian, only to find out when we got a Russian speaking coworker that he only put on a fake accent to sound "dangerous"). And we had our lineup of Superheroes. There was "Mr. Dontgetit", "Mrs. Iknowiknow" and "The General" (he usually lamented how he fought for the country and still gets no recognition). And a whole host of people I don't remember for one reason or another. Time is a blessing, it makes you forget...

Now imagine if the database of these people, along with not too flattering entries, got published. I shudder at the thought.

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.

Bad PR for Bad company? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 3 months ago | (#47253473)

considering that most people are not tech savvy and use the same password username combo everywhere its probably pretty bad PR for dominos if a large chunk of the user database in those country's is on the street.

also dominos PR statement says that the hackers where pretty sophisticated for decoding the information

I am willing to bet for a pizza that the information was not hashed and if hashed it was probably unsalted hashes which seems strange since dominos always puts to much salt on everything

Paying the ransom won't help... (1)

If they pay the ransom or not the data is still compromised and customer will have to be notified.

I was Manager at one of their franchises when they introdued the new point of sale system they bought from another company. All employee and customer data was stored in a encrypted db, but the back up was not and was all plain text and in a non-protected folder of a generic login that everyone knows. I brought this to their attention and the responce was "it was designed that way, so that is the way it is." Not only would they not make an attempt to secure the data, they felt there was no cause for concern. More than likely this was an inside job and the main servers @ domino's have the same setup. This is probably not the first time they have lost user date, just the first time they acknowledged it.

I wonder if choice of toppings correlates to voting history.
And if so, could it be circular? I.e. interesting people in more non-traditional toppings could influence their views on non-traditional topics...?
