Hackers Steal McDonald's Customer Data, Hamburgler Wanted for Questioning

Paul Lilly

We don't know if the Hamburgler was involved, but a group of hackers may have driven off with personal information from an undetermined number of McDonald's customers, the fast food chain alerted potential victims via email.

"Our records indicate you previously elected to submit information to McDonald's in connection with one of our websites or promotions," McDonald's wrote . "We wanted to let you know there is a possibility that the limited information you provided to McDonald's through its websites or promotions was improperly accessed by an unauthorized third party."

McDonald's said it is working with law enforcement officials to investigate the incident, and that stolen information would not include sensitive financial information, such as Social Security Numbers or credit card numbers, as the fast food chain does not collect such info online or through email.
