Sprint Seals Privacy Hole
Jul 12, 2006, 3:29 PM by (staff)
Sprint today announced they have closed a hole in an automated registration system that would reveal the name and address of any Sprint subscriber to the caller. The automated system, used to sign subscribers up for international calling plans, originally would ask the caller to confirm the name and address of any Sprint Nextel customer after a phone number was entered. Later the caller could access the names of other subscribers in that household, all without ever having to answer any security questions. Sprint has now changed the system so that after a phone number is entered, the user will have to provide security data for that number before any private information is divulged.
