The Register: Virtually everyone in Malaysia pwned in telco, govt data hack spree

The Register: Virtually everyone in Malaysia pwned in telco, govt data hack spree. “The personal data of millions of Malaysians has been swiped by hackers who raided government servers and databases at a dozen telcos in the southeast Asia nation. Information on 46.2 million cellphone accounts was slurped from Malaysians telecoms providers. To put that in context, the population of Malaysia is 31.2 million; obviously, some people have more than one number.” This is the second entire-population-possibly-impacted story I’ve seen recently; the first one, of course, being South Africa.
