A number of McDonald’s customers may need a “Happy Meal” as soon as they find out some of their personal information has been exposed by hackers.
The fast-food giant say hackers had gained access to a database that contained personal information such as birth dates and e-mail addresses of customers. McDonald’s customers voluntarily sign up for the fast-food chain’s websites and promotions. The company says the security breach did not include any Social Security numbers, credit card accounts or other sensitive financial data. McDonald’s says the hacking is being investigated.
