reveal the name, address and even bank details of more than 500 thousand users


#What a way to end 2020 for #Telcel and more than half a million of its users who have seen much of their sensitive information leaked, such as name, address, RFC and even bank details.


#Perhaps the largest leak in the history of #Telcel

#Twitter user @hiramcoop, co-founder of the cybersecurity consulting firm #Seekcurity, reported in a post the leak of two alleged databases of #Telcel users in #Mexico. The first, according to the publication, contains the information of almost 700 thousand user records and the second has “36 mln”.

#According to the report, the file name refers because the database contains the information of users of rental plans for the year 2016 of #Telcel’s region 1, corresponding to the states of #Baja #California, #Baja #California #Sur and the municipality of #San #Luis Río #Colorado, #Sonora.

#On the other hand, #Hiram #Alejandro had access to the first database and mentions that it actually contains 588,350 records, 111,000 less than the 699,350 promised by the cybercriminals who published the information. #More importantly, the database has a record of sensitive information that goes from name, address and RFC to model and IMEI of the smartphone in use, card numbers and personal contact numbers.

#Hiram undertook the task of validating the information with the help of public databases and gave several examples that suggest that the information is true, matching the name, number and location of three users that appear in the database.

#Without further details for now, the evidence suggests that this is perhaps the largest leak in the history of #Telcel. #Meanwhile, from #Xataka #Mexico we have contacted #Telcel to ask for a position on this delicate issue, and as soon as we have a response we will update this publication.
