Re: ZDNet: Hacker nabs 3m Verizon customer records

And the problem is what is anyone going to do about it?

Since this hacker had a twitter account, Twitter should do all it can to help find this idiot and make him pay. If Twitter does nothing, then any calls of them being hacked should go unanswered by law enforcement.

If this was Verizon who was hacked and not a marketing firm then Verizon should also pay for any damages incurred by the customer. Pay for the credit monitoring for 5 years and take steps to lock everything down.

That's definitely Verizon customer data. I found my uncle's info on there as well as one of my co-workers. Seems to be PA customers only. My parents do not appear to be on there though.

Where can I check the list?

There is no place to check it unless you download the same leaked confidential file.

PMed you the link. I had the hardest time finding it and eventually found it in the comments of a Reddit post. The original pastebin was taken down however it linked to a paid download site. I found a free mirror of the file.

Why should VZ not hold it contractors to the same standard of care it claims to take with its own systems?

I couldn't find it. The pastebin upload has been removed. There was a report it was available somewhere else. "File sharing site" was not named.

I'd be interested, not in the data, but what the content was. At least one report said passwords were included. Can't imagine a marketing partner would get password info.

Something is still fishy.

[/BQUOTE ]:

This is what I was wondering. Why would a third party get information such as passwords?
Fishy indeed.

It does not appear to have passwords in plain text (nothing obvious) and no hashed password. The screenshot on the left is positions 0-132 and the one on the right is positions 647-844. The stuff in the middle (not pictured) has name, address, several Y/N columns, aerial or buried. Both pics were altered to not show everything.
