British based carrier Vodafone, the second largest telecommunications provider in the world, has announced that a recent hack resulted in some 1,827 customers having their account data stolen. Vodafone has been subjected to two attacks in October, with 20,000 customers on MVNO TalkTalk earlier last month.While 1,827 customers for a company that has 450 million consumers may not seem a lot, it represents a problem for Vodafone as the giant keeps being breached. The only silver lining for the company is that not debit card or credit card details were leaked and no financial information was stolen. Vodafone says it is now contacting those affected to show them how to protect themselves moving forward as the stolen details could be used in phishing scams. At the very least, if you are a Vodafone customer you should change your username and password for your account.
