An anonymous reader writes “McDonald’s servers were recently compromised and hackers were able to get access to customers’ e-mail addresses, names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, genders, as well as certain information about their promotional preferences and Web information interests. The sites affected were: McDonalds.com, 365Black.com, McDonalds.ca, mcdonaldsmom.com, mcdlive.com, monopoly.com, playatmcd.com, and meencanta.com. The restaurant chain is warning customers to be cautious of anyone claiming to be from McDonald’s contacting them by phone or e-mail, and asking for personal or financial information. McDonald’s has also set up a FAQ page for affected customers with 13 questions and their corresponding answers.” Update by KD : Weld Pond tweets: “Silverpop email marketer owned. Was email subcontractor for McDonalds and DevientART (13M users) and 105 other orgs.”
