Pizza Hut Leaks Credit Card Info On 60,000 Customers

An anonymous reader quotes McClatchy:
Pizza Hut told customers by email on Saturday that some of their personal information may have been compromised. Some of those customers are angry that it took almost two weeks for the fast food chain to notify them. According to a customer notice emailed from the pizza chain, those who placed an order on its website or mobile app between the morning of Oct. 1 and midday Oct. 2 might have had their information exposed. The “temporary security intrusion” lasted for about 28 hours, the notice said, and it’s believed that names, billing ZIP codes, delivery addresses, email addresses and payment card information — meaning account number, expiration date and CVV number — were compromised… A call center operator told McClatchy that about 60,000 people across the U.S. were affected.
“[W]e estimate that less than one percent of the visits to our website over the course of the relevant week were affected,” read a customer notice sent only to those affected, offering them a free year of credit monitoring. But that hasn’t stopped sarcastic tweets like this from the breach’s angry victims.
“Hey @pizzahut, thanks for telling me you got hacked 2 weeks after you lost my cc number. And a week after someone started using it.”
