3,000,000 Verizon customer entry files are claimed to be stolen by hacker TibitXimer. As a show of proof, the hacker recently posted some 300,000 entries to a code sharing site which will remain unnamed. The data was apparently compromised back in July of this year and is said to include account passwords, names, addresses and more.
TibitXimer first revealed his hack to ZDNet, saying he has access to more than "three million customers' names, mobile serial numbers, account passwords, and other information." He went on to say that he has "no idea exactly how many records he nabbed in total," and that "the three million figure is a low estimate calculated from the size of one record and the total size of all the files."
Tibit says he first alerted Verizon of the venerability and was ignored and he posted the information to the code sharing site to hopefully grab Verizon's attention. He has not said that he will leak the rest of the files, but he will leave that possibility open.
