Three UK data breach angers network subscribers
Three UK customers have been left angered following news that internet fraudsters recently gained access to network subscriber's sensitive information following an attack on the network's handset upgrade database.
Customers have complained that when logging into their My3 accounts they were able to see the names, addresses, phone numbers and call histories of other Three customers.
Three UK subscriber Mark Thompson posted on Facebook saying that there had been a "shocking breach of data privacy," after another Three customer phoned him after logging into her My3 account only to be presented with Mr Thompson's subscriber details.
The network themselves have commented onthe data breach saying, "We are aware of a small number of customers who may have been able to view the mobile account details of other Three users using My3,"
"No financial details were viewable during this time,"
Upon learning of the data breach the network pulled their My3 service offline while the vulnerability was fixed. The network has't released detials of how many customers were affected.
