DoorDash data breach exposes 4.9 million users' details
DoorDash has confirmed a data breach impacting 4.9 million users including customers, delivery workers and merchants. The food delivery company said that the breach happened on May 4 and that customers who joined after April 5, 2019 are not affected.
Given the size and scale of the incident, it remains unclear why it took several months for DoorDash to publicly address the incident. Furthermore, this is not the first data breach to affect the company. In 2018 DoorDash customers’ notified the company their accounts were hacked in an apparent data breach, according to TechCrunch.
In terms of the implications on service users:
Users who joined the platform before April 5, 2018 had their name, email and delivery addresses, order history, phone numbers and hashed and salted passwords stolen.
