The customer service staffer attempted to sell the datasets but T-Mobile refused to reveal further detailed information, citing an ongoing police investigation.
It is unknown how much of the usual name, e-mail address, account number and so on that the marketing database contained. T-Mobile Czech Republic says only that it did not include location, traffic, or other “sensitive data such as passwords”.
There was also no word on how a single staffer, since sacked, could have had access to 1.5 million records and been able to siphon it off en masse.
