Information on more than 600,000 Domino's Pizza Inc customers in Belgium and France has been stolen, and the hackers say they’ll publish the data online unless they’re paid a cash ransom, according to several reports.

Customer names, delivery addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and passwords were taken from a server used in an online ordering system that the company is in the process of replacing, Domino's spokesman Chris Brandon said Monday, Reuters reported.

The Telegraph reported that a tweet by “Rex Mundi,” directed at Domino's customers, said hackers would publish the customer data online unless the company paid $40,800.

Andre ten Wold, chief executive of Domino's Pizza, told Dutch newspaper De Standaard that the ransom demand would not be paid and that a complaint had been filed with a court in Paris, The Telegraph reported.

Domino's Vice President of Communications Tim McIntyre said no financial data had been taken from the server.

“This does not affect any market outside of France and Belgium,” he told Reuters in an email. “The site has been secured.”
