Julian Assange to reveal McDonald's secrets?

Coming hot on the heels of the WikiLeaks scandal, now comes the disturbing news that McDonald's has been hacked:

The recent theft of customer information belonging to McDonald's is thought to be part of a larger security breach that may affect more than 105 companies that contract with Atlanta-based email marketing services firm Silverpop Systems.

In a notice on its website, McDonald's recently warned customers who registered for promotions or subscribed to any McDonald's website that their email addresses and other personal information may have been compromised by hackers.

The fast-food chain said an unauthorized individual was able to gain access to customer information after defeating the security measures put in place by an email database management firm.

Conservative McDonald's customers are advocating prosecuting and hanging the guilty hacker for treason.
