BANGKOK, April 17 (Reuters) - Thai mobile phone operator True Corp said on Tuesday personal identification data of 11,400 of its customers has been made public by its unit iTruemart, in possibly the first known instance of a major data leak at a mobile operator in Thailand.
The files made public belonged to customers buying “TrueMove H” mobile packages via True’s e-commerce platform iTruemart, Pakpong Pattanamas, a deputy director for True Corp’s mobile business, told reporters at a news conference held at the telecoms regulator’s office.
No data of other TrueMove H customers was affected, he added.
True Corp is Thailand’s second biggest mobile operator and the flagship company of billionaire Dhanin Chearavanont’s Charoen Pokphand Group. (Reporting by Wirat Buranakanokthanasan; Writing by Patpicha Tanakasempipat; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
