Hackers Take Data of 8.7m KT Korean Mobile Phone Users

Two alleged hackers have been arrested in Korea for their part in hacking into Korea’s second largest mobile service provider, KT, and taking the residential date of almost half its registered users. It is reported that with this information, the hackers could have sold the it for $800,000.

It’s scary to think that when we are registered with a company for a certain service, it is so easy to have our information compromised.

Recently, I purchased something on the internet with my credit card. After a short while, it so happened that I had to change my credit card, with a new number. Ah, I was quite relieved that this new number is not logged anywhere on the internet! Wait a minute… it is. On mt online banking account!
