Potential Access to Customer Data by Unauthorized Third Party [aboutmcdonalds.com]
The information contained in the database is limited to your email address and potentially also your name, postal address, home or cell phone number, birth date, gender, and certain information about your promotional preferences or web information interests. This is information you provided when you signed up or subscribed. The database did not contain Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers or any sensitive financial information, since McDonald’s did not collect this information.

Law enforcement authorities have been contacted and are investigating the matter.

I was wondering how long until something like this came along. Maybe their getting out in front of this is all part of their "Social Responsibility". ;)

I like to go to McD's to get served food, not web pages.
Now, some people might just "Get Served".

Just think what they can do with this!

OK, I cannot think of a thing the hackers can do. Likely in in safer hands than with McDonalds.

Why would someone give McD all that info online? Do you get a free whopper in exchange? ooops, I mean big mac ;-)

You have to hack Wendy's for that. :)

McDonald's was not hacked. Silverpop Systems Inc was.

This is why you should never give your main email, home address or tel nos. on ANY website form.

If you do want a free burger, or entry into a competition then use a throw away email and false name.
