Customers of TGI Fridays Australia were “strongly recommended” to change their MyFridays membership rewards program passwords. According to an email sent to customers this week, the company had inadvertently left sensitive loyalty program data exposed on the internet.

The company explained to Threatpost the publicly exposed data included “back-up files containing data related to an Australian customer program. This did not include any financial information and there has not been any malicious data breach or hack.”
