Call Centers Present Data Breach Threat
Indian call center workers are selling names, addresses, phone numbers and credit card data for as little as $0.03 per record.
The Daily Mail reports that call center workers in India have been selling confidential information on almost half a million UK residents.
"Undercover reporters from The Sunday Times met with two individuals who claimed to be IT workers who offered to provide them with 45 different types of data gathered from the victims," writes Sophos' Chester Wisniewski. "Information offered up included names, addresses, phone numbers and credit card details (including CCV/CVV codes and expiration dates)."
"The reporters allege they could purchase the records for as little as 2 pence apiece ($0.03 USD)," Wisniewski writes.
