Security researchers at vpnMentor discovered an unprotected database containing information belonging to Freedom Mobile customers.
Freedom Mobile is the fourth largest mobile network operator in Canada. The unprotected database stored at least 5 million records associated with 1.5 million users of the mobile network operator.
Exposed records include email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, dates of birth, IP addresses associated with payment methods, credit scores (from Equifax and other companies), unencrypted payment card data with CVV codes, locations, and other customer service records, and account details. All the data was encrypted.
