"Heads up " for O2 mobile phone users in the U/K

Hi all

          This notification dropped in my mailbox today as I subscribe to the Sophos Naked Security notification website and therefore receive regular updates on current threats etc: .........

http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2012/01/25/smartphone-website-telephone-number/?utm_source=Naked+Sec...

 

I'm not an O2 user myself ....so I don't know just how aware users of the O2 service may be regarding this issue regarding users phone numbers being divulged in the manner that the  Sophos article describes !

 

It seems that "Twitter " has been busy today with many users venting their anger regarding this issue ! 

 

Further checks I made have shown that there has been some knowlege of incidents of this nature from two years past ?

 

As I stated..I myself am not an O2 client ..but I have posted this link just in case any users of the O2 service were not aware of the matter !
