Police are investigating a new data breach at Bell Canada, which says hackers have illegally obtained customer information, primarily subscriber
names and e-mail addresses.
Bell confirmed today that up to 100,000 customers were affected by the hack, which comes about eight months after hackers accessed nearly 1.9 million Bell customer e-mail addresses as well as 1,700 names and phone numbers.
A Bell Canada spokesperson said there was “no indication that any credit card or other banking information was accessed.”
Several customers on Tuesday reported receiving an e-mail from John Watson, executive vice-president of customer experience at Bell, informing them that some of their customer information was illegally accessed.
