Hershey Milk Chocolate. Available to buy online in Australia from http://www.moolollybar.com.au. To go there just click on this photo!Hackers breached security on the website of the American chocolate giant Hershey’s and changed a baking recipe, it has emerged.

They recently targeted the firm, the United States’ largest chocolate manufacturer and maker of the iconic Hershey bar.

But rather than seeking personal information, it appears the intruders merely sought to adjust one of the free recipes Hershey’s publishes for fans of its chocolate, which is often derided as poor quality in Europe.

In an email warning to customers, it said it had “recently discovered that an unauthorized individual accessed one of our websites and altered one of our baking recipes”.

“All indications are that this incident involved only the site where we manage consumer baking and cooking recipes. No financial information was stored on the same server as our recipes, and Hershey’s online stores operate on a different system,” it added.

The firm did not disclose which particular baking recipe the hackers altered and their motivation is unclear.
