    *Website Breach* KFC Colonels Club accounts stolen

    Just had an email from KFC saying that they've had a data breach and that they suspect my account details were involved.

    I recommend you change your password as soon as possible, as well as other passwords on different sites.

    Desperate people if they want to steal your chicken stamps.

    They better not take my £5 off! I worked hard to earn that!

    Fowl play?

    I received this email today too.

    surprises me how long these people take to inform there customers these things have been sold on the darkweb for ages & they only now let people no

    That Hamburgler, he's made McStakes.

    I got this email as well. Can't believe someone's trying to nick my chicken! Mothercluckers!

    At least they've informed you now rather than waiting months like some other companies.

    That's why i keep my golden nuggets in a security box.

    The only part of the chain worth anything was revealed in August this year:

    [ independent.co.uk/new…tml ]

    Of all the things someone could hack....(_;)

    Thanks for the heads up, I never received the email but changed anyway. These breaches are happening more and more now everywhere.

    I still got 6 from the stamp submission glitch at the end of October! (I put the details of how I did it on one of the colonels club deals I posted - didn't bother posting the 27th November one firstly because I was suspended by Hamilton fanboys and secondly the only difference was "£1 off a burrito")

    One thing I would point out is the links go to their email provider (kfcuk.cmail19.com and some random identifying I bet text) first NOT direct to kfc.co.uk...... Would you click on a link directly on an email from "your bank" if it didn't say yourbank.co.uk ?

    I would also recommend you use a Password Manager and select randomly generated passwords

    I know... choking the chicken is more common.

    I received this email last week but wasn't too sure if it was genuine, so I ignored it. Not sure if I did the right though tbh.
    Just checked my trash email and I had the same one last Friday..

    Mmmm... mechanically recovered chicken.

    lol. I saw these accounts being bandied about on IRC a while ago. Yeah they were hacked and is that them just noticing it now ?

    They were using them to get the points and showing the app at KFC for free food.

    If it's on the bone MRC isn't an issue though? I picked up a card instore about 18 months ago and I've still not linked it to/set up an online account or downloaded the app. I visit that infrequently that I've always forgotten to do it. That's why I ignored the email and presumed it was another login scam, hence the reason for my earlier response. As I said I could wrong..but now I've come back to reply I feel hungry and fancy a bargain bucket
