On Friday, Its operations were unaffected by a Data Breach At McDonald’s, which comes amid a worrying wave of cyberattacks aimed at high-profile targets.
After discovering illegal activity on its network, the business stated it collaborated with “skilled third parties” to conduct a “thorough investigation.”
“While we were able to promptly block off access following the identification,” McDonald’s Corporation stated in a statement to ABC News, “our investigation has shown that a small number of files were read, some of which included personal data.”
The hackers accessed client personal data in Korea and Taiwan, but no files included consumer payment information, according to their research. “Steps will be taken to alert regulators and consumers named in these files,” the business added.
McDonald’s said in a statement, but the company did not say which markets were affected. According to the Wall Street Journal, the hack revealed business contact information for U.S. workers and franchisees, citing an internal letter to U.S. workers, but no U.S. customer data or personal employee data.
The data leak at McDonald’s comes amid a slew of high-profile cyberattacks that have alarmed corporate executives and legislators.
JBS, the world’s largest meatpacking company, claimed earlier this week that it had paid $11 million in Bitcoin to the hackers who broke into its system after it was hit by ransomware.
Colonial Pipeline paid the hackers $4.4 million in ransom, but the Justice Department later revealed that the criminal cell behind the attack had been seized of millions of dollars.
