Pizza Hut has become the latest household name to suffer a payment card breach.

The company admitted the incident on Saturday in an email sent to affected customers, nearly two weeks after it discovered and remediated the issue.

According to the email, shared on social media by some recipients, affected customers placed orders on the company’s mobile app or website for about 28 hours between the morning of October 01 and midday on October 02.
