McDonald's has lost thousands of customer details to a hacker, including 
names, phone numbers and street and e-mail addresses. The fast food 
chain is also warning of pending phishing scams.

The customer details were lost after a hacker broke into the fast-food 
restaurant's U.S. marketing partner and stole the details provided by 
customers who sign up for promotions.

McDonald's was concerned that the hacker might use the details to 
conduct phishing scams. Phishing scams are fraudulent email campaigns
