Eatigo reports data breach

SINGAPORE (CNA) – Personal data from potentially 2.8 million eatigo accounts were illegally assessed in a data breach.

In an email to customers on Saturday, the restaurant reservation platform said that along with other e-commerce sites, it was the subject of “a data security incident involving unauthorised access to our customer database”.

“Our investigations indicate that the information that was illegally accessed was from more than 18 months ago and included customer names, email addresses and phone numbers,” said eatigo.

“Your existing eatigo account password is protected by encryption and hence safe. We do not store credit card information on our system.”

According to a post on an online forum purportedly selling personal data from various e-commerce sites around the world, information from 2.8 million eatigo accounts in Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand are up for sale.

Eatigo said it was made aware of the incident on Friday, and urged users to reset their passwords as a precautionary measure.
