It's getting harder to order with a human at McDonald's.

At least one group of friends is apparently okay with that.

They hacked a McDonald's self-service order kiosk to get a free burger.

This was not a security hack, per se, but an interesting series of additions, deletions, and special orders that ended up with them walking away with free food.

Here is the YouTube video they posted which documents how they got free food at McDonald's: 

When you think about it, what these friends did in the McDonald's kiosk burger hack is similar to what hackers do against our networks.

They poke and prod in ways that are hard to anticipate and can lead to unexpected results.
