The website of a major Korean telecommunications company has been hacked leading to the leak of personal data of 12 million KT Telecom clients, including their resident registration numbers and bank account numbers.
The Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency has reportedly arrested two professional hackers and the head of a telemarketing company for pocketing 10.8 million U.S. dollars using the personal data.
The three reportedly used more than half of the stolen personal data to sell smartphones, while the rest of the data was sold off to smartphone retail shops.
