Information on an unknown number of pizza lovers was stolen early this month after hackers sliced their way into Pizza Hut’s website for a 28-hour period, PCMag reported.

Between Oct. 1 and Oct. 2, hackers made off with the names, billing ZIP codes, delivery addresses, email addresses and payment information of Pizza Hut customers who ordered through the company’s website and mobile app. The nationwide chain alerted people potentially affected by the breach via email on Oct. 14.

Pizza Hut said the company quickly spotted and cut off the attack, and estimate that less than 1 percent of website visitors were affected. Still, a number of victims are cheesed off after the company took two weeks to reveal the attack, saying fraudulent charges already appeared in their bank statements.
