Verizon has confirmed the personal information of six million customers was recently leaked online. A cyber security company, named ‘Upguard,’ uncovered the issue. They said it was caused by “human error”.
Upguard alerted Verizon on June 13th, but the security hole was not closed until June 22nd. Verizon said no loss or theft of customer information occurred.
Still, Upguard advises Verizon customers to update their pin codes, and never use the same one twice.
