"For the people concerned, the data recovered includes their first names and surnames," an Orange spokesperson told BBC. "In addition, depending on the information supplied, email addresses, mobile and fixed-line phone numbers, the identity of the person's Internet operator and their date of birth, were also recovered."

 

Orange CEO Stephane Richard said his company would try to keep data more secure following NSA spy revelations, but the company is struggling with its cybersecurity efforts.
