Anyone putting an order in the US using the Pizza Hut’s website or mobile app on Oct. 1-2 may have ought their credit card details were stolen.

As described by the Lexington HeraldLeader, Pizza Hut sent out an email to buyers yesterday, Oct. 14, telling them of the breach. The company identified it as a “temporary security intrusion,” which made steps carried out between the morning of Oct. 1 and midday Oct. 2 vulnerable.

Anyone putting an order in the US using the Pizza Hut’s website or mobile app on Oct. 1-2 may have ought their credit card details were stolen.

As described by the Lexington HeraldLeader, Pizza Hut sent out an email to buyers yesterday, Oct. 14, telling them of the breach. The company identified it as a “temporary security intrusion,” which made steps carried out between the morning of Oct. 1 and midday Oct. 2 vulnerable.

The data stolen includes names, delivery addresses, email addresses, and credit card information including the number, expiration date, and the CVV number. Some clients are now reporting their cards have been used fraudulently; presumably, if Pizza Hut had notified customers of the breach quickly, action could have been taken to remove cards and avoid the fraud.

As to the result of the security breach, Pizza Hut believes “less than 1 percent of the visits” were affected. Apparently, that changes out to be about 60,000 people across the US. Pizza Hut is offering anyone affected by this one year of free credit monitoring through Kroll Information Assurance.

Pizza Hut has not yet revealed why it occurred. Suggestions that the full extent of the violation took time to uncover or that law implementation delayed the announcement need clarifying.
