McDonalds has an appauling reputation as it is in the UK and have tried to change their image drastically over here. Giving away free MP3
players that come pre-loaded with malware, doesn't seem to be a good marketing technique. The MP3 players thoughtfully had QQpass installed, free of charge. Now usernames, passwords and bank details are free for use to the writer. In response to the 'possible problem' (WHAT DO YOU MEAN? POSSIBLE!?!?!?!?!), McDonalds have set up a 24-hour hotline. According to Gizmodo, most conversations are going somewhat like this.
JFOP (Junk-Food-Obbsessed-Person): My identity has been stolen thanks to your ****ty MP3 player.
SIT (Spotty-Ignorant-Teenager): Okay Sir. Is our food unsafe for consumption?
JFOP: Well... uhh... yeah. I guess.
SIT: But that's why it's so tasty, no?
JFOP: I guess... How is this related though?
SIT: McDonalds also thought that unsafe music could be extra good, too...but if you're watching your credit line...
JFOP: No, no I'm not.
SIT: Then perhaps you'd like to try our new McSledgehammer? It's really cad for your computer.
JFOP: Sounds delicious!
