Online food ordering service EatStreet has revealed a major data breach affecting customers and restaurant partners.
The two-week incident happened in May, when an “unauthorized third party was able to acquire information in our database,” according to letters sent to EatStreet’s customers, delivery partners and restaurants.
Colin Little, Senior Threat Analyst at Centripetal Networks:
“The case of the EatStreet breach is a doomsday scenario for the average consumer where a service was used for convenience or necessity, and ended up causing a major threat to the consumer's interests,” argued Colin Little, senior threat analyst at Centripetal Networks.
“With the number of mobile or cloud-based consumer services a person leverages day-to-day, and the two-week time-to-detect for complete access to a database that contains some of the most sensitive PII, this event shows that consumers deserve organizations who will proactively hunt for threats to minimize the risk to consumer data.”
