McDonald’s Corp. is not lovin’ its cybersecurity measures right now. The global fast food giant recently announced that McDonald’s Canada career website was hit with a cyberattack that compromised the personal information of approximately 95,000 job applicants.
The data-(ham)burglar stole the personal information of applicants that applied for a job at McDonald’s in Canada between March 2014 and March 2017. The compromised information includes name, address, email address, phone number, employment background and other information, McDonald’s said. The hamburger chain said its careers page will remain shut down until the investigation over the data breach is complete.
McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food restaurant that has been plagued by cybersecurity threats.
Wendy’s Co. recently failed to shake off class claims filed by 26 financial institutions over a data breach that compromised customers’ payment card data, including account holder’s name, account number and expiration date.
In December, fried chicken giant KFC warned 1.2 million of its Colonel’s Club loyalty program members that its website was hacked.
As the lyrics to the original McDonald’s commercial song—performed by Justin Timberlake and hip hop duo Clipse— said: “sometimes we have mishaps, you just overcoming adaptive setbacks.” Let’s hope McDonald’s overcomes this setback adapting to cybersecurity mishaps.
