Pizza Hut Australia notified 193,000 customers that the company had suffered a data breach.

Pizza Hut Australia became aware of the cyber security incident earlier this month that an unauthorised third party had accessed its data. The company investigated and believes that only a small proportion of customers had their personal information stolen. That information included full name, delivery address, delivery instructions, email address, phone number, masked credit card data and encrypted passwords for online accounts. They decided to send a notification to all 193,000 of their customers out of an abundance of caution, to remind them of steps they can take to protect their information and avoid potential scams. Pizza Hut Australia and its parent company had suffered cyber security incidents in the past, including a ransomware attack at the start of the year which forced the closure of three hundred locations in the United Kingdom.
