McDonalds Mobile Hack

The Canadian McDonald’s app, called My McD’s, is just the latest target for cyber criminals. Last year, they were busy stealing Aeroplan and PC Optimum rewards points from some members’ online accounts. Many of the fraudsters involved in PC Optimum cases also carried out their crimes in Quebec.

Cybersecurity expert Ritesh Kotak said that in the digital era, companies need to pull out all the stops to protect consumers from cyber criminals.

“We’re moving to a cashless society,” said Ritesh who’s based in Toronto. “They put all this money into app development, are they putting the same amount of money and rigour and research into the security component of it?”
