Another high-profile company admits to a hacker attack in the UK.
Mobile phone carrier Vodafone got hacked last week. A statement from Vodafone UK says that hackers had access to 1,827 costumer records. The hackers could see the customer’s name, their mobile telephone number, their bank sort code and the last 4 digits of their bank account. The stolen data would not be enough to cause serious harm. Vodafone cautions though that the this information does leave these 1,827 customers open to fraud and might also leave them open to phishing attempts.

Vodafone has blocked the accessed customer accounts and contacted them directly to assist them with changing their account details.
Vodafone UK says that the attack took place between midnight on Wednesday 28 October and midday on Thursday 29 October. The two teens arrested by police in connection with the TalkTalk hack have an alibi.
The Vodafone hackers used email addresses and passwords acquired from an unknown source external to Vodafone. Vodafone’s systems were not compromised or breached in any way.
