DoCoMo discovers data leak

24 Oct 2005

Japanese cellco NTT DoCoMo has discovered that email addresses of around 71,000 users of its mobile service were temporarily exposed via the website of a Guam-based internet firm. Following a probe by DoCoMo, it was unveiled that the website provided access to a list of 320,000 email addresses of past and present DoCoMo subscribers. The ISP has now made it impossible for internet users to read the list.
