(Reuters) – McDonald's Corp's (N:MCD) Canadian unit said on Friday private information of around 95,000 restaurant very easily was compromised within a cyber attack on its careers website.
The information included names, addresses, contact information, mobile and employment backgrounds of candidates who applied online for jobs at McDonald's Canada restaurants between March 2019 and March 2019.
The careers website was de-activate after McDonald's stumbled on the attack, and often will remain closed until a continuous investigation is done, the device said.
The company stated it currently didn’t have any evidence that the information taken was misused.
McDonald's Canada said its request forms never request sensitive personal data just like social insurance numbers, banking or health information.
McDonald's said earlier this year its official Twitter handle was compromised after the tweet sent from the account slammed U.S. President Donald Trump.
