DoorDash is a popular food delivery company through which you can order food online. It is like Uber Eats, InstaCart, Foodora, Skip the Dishes, Chefs Plate, Cmeow and Platterz.

The online food delivery service DoorDash says a data breach occurred in which the personal information of 4.9 million people was stolen, including names, email addresses, delivery addresses, phone numbers, and partial banking and credit card details.

DoorDash allows customers to order food from a usual computer or smartphone. The company said on Thursday an "unauthorized third party" accessed some of the San Francisco-based company's user data on May 4.

The result is that information on customers, merchants and even some delivery drivers was stolen. Partial details of banking, credit card data and driver's licence numbers was taken. The company has said it has closed the access point that was used to view the data. Check with door dash for updates on which data was stolen and which dates. Some USA and Canadian users are impacted.

Sounds like poor security management, a common thing these days because people think they won't be hacked.
Even huge companies have to put more effort now against new hacking technologies. In the worst case, a bank account could be hacked to send an e-transfer to someone.
