Dunkin’ Says Credential Stuffing Attacks Targeted DD Perks Accounts


Dunkin’ Brands Inc. (“Dunkin'”) said that bad actors recently used credential stuffing attacks to target some DD Perks accounts.

Kari McHugh, senior director of customer relations at Dunkin’, wrote in a sample letter sent to the Office of the Vermont Attorney General that the company detected a wave of credential stuffing attacks near the beginning of the year. As quoted in the notice:

Beginning on or around January 10, 2019, we learned from one of our security vendors that a third-party may have attempted to log in to your DD Perks account. We believe that these third-parties obtained usernames and passwords from security breaches of other companies. These individuals then used the usernames and passwords to try to break in to various online accounts across the Internet.

If they were successful in authenticating themselves, the attackers might have gained access to a DD Perks account holder’s name, email address, 16-digit DD Perks account number and DD Perks QR code.
