We’re not sure when this happened but we’ve just discovered this morning that the McDonald’s Malaysia website has been hacked. Apparently, by a group of hackers who call themselves the “ProtoWave” gang.
As seen in the screenshot above, the landing page doesn’t say much except, “Why eat with a clown, when you can eat with a king?” Of course, fans of fast food would instantly recognise that reference, as “king” indicates “Burger King”. Also, the usage of Spanish words suggests that “ProtoWave” aren’t a local (read: Malaysian) bunch.
As at time of writing, McDonald’s Malaysia has yet to recover their original site or release and official statement regarding the intrusion. But we’re sure that the original website will be up and running again in no time.
Meanwhile, this is the song that plays in the background, in case you were wondering. You’re welcome:
UPDATE (13th November, 9:30am):
The McDonald’s Malaysia website has been restored. All is well in the land of “I’m Lovin’ It!” 🙂
