McDonald's Corporation (MCD  ) said on Friday that the global technology system outage that hampered its systems across multiple locations has been quickly identified and corrected.

Many markets are back online, and the rest are coming back online, the company said in a statement.

"We are closely working with those markets that are still experiencing issues," said Brian Rice, EVP, Global Chief Information Officer.

Rice clarified that a cybersecurity event did not directly cause this issue. Instead, it was caused by a third-party provider during a configuration change.

"Reliability and stability of our technology are a priority, and I know how frustrating it can be when there are outages," Rice added.
