Vodafone Germany Insider Steals Customer Data
Last September, Bloomberg reported that Vodafone suffered a data breach that could affect two million customers. The company later revealed that the attacker was an insider with intimate knowledge of their IT infrastructure. Deep inside its systems, the insider was able to grab what Vodafone refers to as a "Master Data" with details on more than two million users.
Cyberattackers got away with customer names, customer addresses, date of birth and partial bank account data. No credit card data, mobile passwords or PINs were reportedly taken in the breach. Vodafone identified the unspecified individual and, according to reports, Vodafone has filed charges.
