McDonald's hit by data breach in Taiwan and South Korea

McDonald's is the latest big company to be hit by a data breach that has exposed customers' details.

The world's biggest burger chain said cyber attackers had accessed a "small number" of files on customers in South Korea and Taiwan.

The breach included e-mail, delivery addresses and phone numbers - but not payment details.

The chief executive of Colonial Pipeline also told senators this week that the decision to pay a $4.4m (£3.1m) ransom to hackers in Bitcoin in May was the "hardest decision" of his career. The majority of that money has since been recovered by the US Department of Justice.
