Tesla has sued a former employee for hacking the electric-car maker’s confidential and trade secret information and allegedly transferring several gigabytes to outside entities.
Personal information of more than 30 million South Africans from what appears to be a government agency has apparently been leaked online in a major data breach.
Bongani Mthombeni was approached by scores of social media users offering him assistance after he missed a bursary application deadline because Vodacom had depleted his data.
Network provider Vodacom has made good on its promise to reimburse customers after a data depletion error, but not everyone has been refunded.
Sensitive private information of 30 million South Africans, contained in a massive data breach, appears to have been hacked from a credit bureau.
Vodacom CEO Shameel Joosub says the network will give all customers affected by its recent network glitch, 500MB over and above reimbursement of lost data.
Vodacom said the technically glitch that drained data bundles from a significant number of its customers on Monday, was sparked by a configuration change to the network’s billing system.
An overwhelming majority of customers say it is not the first time mobile operator Vodacom has "robbed" them of data.
