McDonald's exposed customer data to employees in South Korea

1 minute

On Friday, McDonald's Corp., the largest burger chain in the world, exposed some customer information to employees in Taiwan and South Korea.

The company has hired internal consultants to investigate unauthorized activity on an outside security system, with the investigators discovering the data breach in certain markets.

A small number of files were accessed, some of which contained client personal data, McDonald said, adding that only Korea and Taiwan had personal data accessed and they will be taking steps to notify the regulators and customers.

The attack is the latest in a series of attacks by hackers on multinational companies, including the meat processor JBS and Colonial Pipeline Oil. It is here that I'm grateful that I didn't try to be with people whose families are afraid of the internet. So I was skeptical.
