Someone named “Sieze” is selling on a criminal forum what they claim are data on all Telus employees and the Canadian telecommunications company’s GitHub software code repositories.
Sieze said, “Today we’re selling email lists of Telus employees from a very recent breach,” it says. “We have over 76k unique emails and on top of this have internal information associated with each employee scraped from Telus’ API.”
“We are investigating claims that a small amount of data related to internal Telus source code and select Telus team members’ information has appeared on the dark web,” said Telus director of public affairs Richard Gilhooley. “We can confirm that to this point our investigation, which we launched as soon as we were made aware of the incident, has not identified any corporate or retail customer data.” (Howard Solomon / IT World Canada)
