Wonga Hacked
#1
Appears that Wonga has been hacked this week. Here is the email that they are circulating around:

Code:
We are writing to you as we believe there may have been illegal and unauthorised access to some of your personal data on your Wonga.com account.

We are urgently working to establish further details, but this may have included one or more of the following: name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, the last four digits of your card number (but not the whole number) and/or your bank account number and sort code.

We do not believe your Wonga account password was compromised and believe your account should be secure, however if you are concerned you should change your account password. We also recommend that you look out for any unusual activity across any bank accounts and online portals.

Security precautions we recommend you to take

Alert your bank: We will be alerting financial institutions about this issue and any individuals impacted as soon as possible, but we recommend that you also contact your bank and ask them to look out for any suspicious activity.

Exercise vigilance: Beware of scammers or unusual online activity. Be cautious of anyone who calls you and asks you to disclose any personal information regardless of where they say they are from. If this happens, we recommend that you hang up.

For more information please see our FAQs here.

If you have any questions, please call us on 0207 138 8330.

We sincerely apologise for this issue and the inconvenience caused.

Yours,

Tommy Jordan, UK CEO

Upon looking into this further we apparently up to 270k people's info could be dumped.

I think that normally depends on the person who acquired the leak. I haven't seen anything on the Deep web as of yet.
