17 million customer details stolen from T-mobiles Deutsche Telecom?
Oh dear, T-mobile’s Deutsche Telecom has warned a major data breach may end in a disclosure of personal details of some seventeen million T-Mobile customers; T-Mobile confirmed the compromised data includes name, addresses and phone numbers of customers.
Other details on politicians, celebrities, and business leaders were also reportedly included in the data snatch, but it is believed that no bank details or credit card information were included in the theft; this news only came to light when the story was offered to Der Spiegel magazine, and is said to have occurred back in 2006.
2006? The mobile world is not informed of this huge data theft until two years later?
