Data Breach at McDonald’s

December 13, 2010

McDonald'sAnyone who gets a call from someone claiming to be from McDonald’s, who is seeking personal or financial information, should hang up the phone and contact the company immediately. Looks like the fast-food company experienced a data breach either today or over the weekend (it’s not saying exactly when the breach occurred.)

According to ABC News:

“A third party was able to get past security measures and see into a database of its customer information that included e-mail, phone numbers, addresses, birthdates and other specifics that they provided when signing up for online promotions or other subscriptions to its websites.”

We know. It's a lot to take in.
