UK carrier Three Mobile has suffered a massive data breach in which the personal information and contact details of millions of customers could have been accessed. It is believed to one of the largest hacks of its kind to affect people living in Britain.
UK-based cyber criminals managed to gain access to the upgrade database in Three’s computer system.
The database contains the personal information of those who are eligible for an upgrade, but it is not clear exactly how many customers this includes. The company has not outlined whether the system includes those who have previously upgraded or historic customers that have left the network.
