Telstra Acknowledges Second Privacy Breach
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIANovember 25, 2010
Approximately 3,000 Telstra customers may have had their privacy breached while using the company's Tribe service, The Sydney Morning Herald reports. The service aggregates social media sites, the report states, and some customers' social networking sites that were accessed using Tribe could be accessed by other Tribe customers. "Most, if not all, affected customers have been rung over the past week or so," a Telstra spokesman said. The latest breach follows a recent report of a Telstra incident where 220,000 letters containing account information were sent to the wrong customers.
