1 min read

A massive data breach has seen the customer data of more than 46 million mobile subscribers in Malaysia leaked on to the dark web.
However, the MCMC confirmed the data breach a day later in a press statement released on Facebook, and then on Monday confirmed that 46.2 million mobile subscribers were affected by the data breach.
It is believed that the entire country – Malaysia has a population of 32 million – might have been affected by the breach, as well as foreigners who were on temporary pre-paid mobile phone numbers.
Dr Mazlan Ismail, the chief operating officer of the MCMC, told the Malay Mail Online that it had met with all of the country’s telecommunications companies to work out how the data breach had occurred.
“Communications services cannot escape the security aspects, [service providers] must work together, and safety features are important to gain the trust of consumers.”
