Verizon Enterprise Breach Leads to 1.5 Million Customers Records Up For Sale

It’s not been a good year for Verizon. Earlier this month we reported on the fact that the company had been fined by the FCC for “supercookie” tracking, and now it would seem that Verizon Enterprise has been breached resulting in 1.5 million customer records being put up for sale.

The revelation comes as a seller has begun advertising the sale of a database with information for 1.5 million customers of Verizon entertainment, all being offered for the price of $100,000. If you feel like that is a little much you can buy 100,000 records for just $10,000. The thread also contains the option to buy information about security vulnerabilities in Verizon’s website, leading people to question just how safe their data is.

In response, Verizon stated that they had “recently discovered and remediated a security on our enterprise client portal”. Regarding the data itself they state that “an attacked obtained basic contact information on a number of our enterprise customers”.

This would appear to authenticate that the data is real although it may not be as juicy and chock filled with information as some might hope it is. This only looks bad for Verizon Enterprise as they are the ones commonly finding flaws and reporting on breaches like these every year. If you were wondering just how much that could have an impact on people, Verizon’s Enterprise client list includes 99% of Fortune 500 companies.
