Mobile World flounders after serious security breach

Vietnam Investment Review reports:

On November 7, a hacker has announced full 16-digit credit card numbers, claiming they belong to Mobile World customers.

After sharing a file containing more than 5.4 million email addresses and 31,000 bank card numbers (six digits covered), claiming they belong to clients of Mobile World, an account called Erwincho continued disclosing sensitive information on RaidForums. The new database uploaded on the internet in the night of November 7 included full 16-digit bank card numbers.

A banking expert said that with this move, the hacker has announced that he knows all bank card numbers recorded through 31,000 transactions at Mobile World (The Gioi Di Dong). The information includes cards issued by Visa, Master Card, and domestic banks.
