Hack was 1st noticed by Whirlpool Forum users. But a Pizza Hut spokeswoman said the company did not store such information on its website. "Pizza Hut can confirm that a layer of its website, pizzahut.com.au, was breached with access gained to names and contact information, including email addresses".

"We are working with our website providers to conduct a thorough investigation of the matter and have also reported the incident to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. We would like to reassure all of our customers that absolutely no credit card information was stolen and there is no need for concern regarding credit cards."

"The security of our online ordering system has not been compromised in any way and our customers can continue to order online in the knowledge the ordering system is secure."

The website was restored now. On 5th of November NBCSports Rotoworld forums and NBC Mobile site was defaced by pyknic.
