Orange warns users of phishing attacks following 2nd security breach

France based Telecoms company Orange has been hacked second time this year, more than 1.3 Million customers are affected by this security breach.

The company sent an email to affected customers which contains a link to “click to call back” button. Users who clicks the link will receive call from Orange.

The personal data accessed by hackers includes names, email addresses, mobile and landline numbers, date of birth as well as names of mobile and internet operators.

No payment information or credit card numbers and no passwords have been compromised in this breach.

However, the main risk in this case is that the compromised data can be used by attackers to launch phishing attacks. Such attacks are claimed to be from the legitimate organizations and tricks users into provide their passwords and financial data.

Back in February 2014, Orange sent letters to 800,000 customers that hackers accessed personal data including email ids, phone numbers, names, mailing addresses.
