German telecomms company, Deutsche Telekom (DT) has announced that it
has found customer details sale on the dark web.
In a German language blog post on its website, DT said that it examined
a sample of 90 records, and found that “at least part” of them are “real
and current.” The actual cache is thought to be a lot larger, between
64,000 records and 120,000 records.
The company denied it has been hacked, and suggested the data may have
been obtained through phishing attacks.
