NEW YORK (AP) -- Walgreen Co. says a list of customers' e-mail addresses has been breached and spam may have been sent out directing customers to enter personal data into outside Web sites.

The company notified customers on Friday that their e-mail had been compromised, but said no other personal information was at risk.

Walgreen warned consumers to be aware of potential e-mail scams that ask for personal information. It reminded customers that Walgreen will not send e-mails asking for credit card, social security, or other personal identification information.

On Sunday, Gawker Media Inc. warned subscribers their database had been hacked while McDonald's Corp. warned consumers on Monday that customer data had been hacked.
