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.
