Italy's Ho Mobile issues new SIM serial codes following data breach

Monday 11 January 2021 | 10:25 CET | News
Vodafone Italia's low-cost brand Ho Mobile announced that it will be protecting customers affected by a recent data breach by automatically issuing new SIM card serial codes. In a statement, the company said it will be generating new ICCID codes and informing customers via SMS that their previous code is no longer valid, preventing any possibility of telephone fraud or SIM swap attacks and allowing them to retain their number and safely change operator in the future.
