Food delivery service DoorDash has confirmed on Thursday that it suffered a data breach that affected 4.9 million customers, workers and merchants. The firm revealed that the hackers were able to gain access to customers’ names, delivery address, phone numbers, order history and the last four digits of their credit cards. The driver’s licence numbers of independent contractors who perform the company’s delivery services were also leaked. 

Affected users are those who have joined the platform before April 5, 2018. The data was compromised on May 4. DoorDash, which has already added additional layers of security around its data, said that it became aware of “unusual activity involving a third-party service provider” earlier this month. Following an investigation and consulting outside security experts, the company blocked an authorised user and started reaching out to affected users urging them to reset their passwords.
