Dodgy Windows Phone app pulled out from Microsoft Store

The KPN subsidiary has recently shut down the My Telfort section of their website — where the customers could edit their personal information and also change their tariffs. And the incident took place when it was being informed by a customer that the sensitive passwords and the phone numbers of over one thousand Telfort customers had been leaked online.

However, after a detailed and brief internal investigation into the leak, first reported this week by the Dutch newspaper De Gelderlander, the Telfort has now restored My Telfort. The telco has also released a statement claiming that the information had surfaced not because of a breach of their security systems, but because those users had entered their sensitive details into a malicious application that was masquerading as a genuine Telfort product.

The fraudulent application, which had been listed in the worldwide Windows Phone Store and was however using the Telfort logo had asked the Telfort users to check their subscription status by entering their login information into the fraud app.
