The National Privacy Commission has ordered Jollibee to suspend operations of its delivery website after detecting “vulnerabilities in its system.”

(Inside Manila) Recently, Wendy's Philippines was subjected to a data breach on its delivery website, infiltrating, harvesting and publishing personal data of users online.


The National Privacy Commission (NPC) has ordered the American fast food chain to notify users affected by the data breach which are estimated to be around 82, 150.


According to NPC, personal details such as names, contact numbers, home addresses, hashed passwords, transaction details, and mode of payment of customers among others were exposed in the leak.


In the same vein, the NPC has also ordered Jollibee to suspend operations of its delivery website after detecting “vulnerabilities in its system.”


In a notice dated May 4, the privacy watchdog ordered jollibeedelivery.com suspended indefinitely “until the site’s identified vulnerabilities are addressed."


Around 18 million people on Jollibee's database – people who order using the website – are currently at "a very high risk" of being exposed to online harm, according to the NPC.


As of writing time, the respective websites of the two fast food chain were no longer taking delivery requests and were both under maintenance.


As for Jollibee Food Corp.’s case, it voluntarily took down the delivery websites of its other brands, "with the exception of Burger King which is on a different platform."
