PTS concludes Tele2 scrutiny after erroneous publication of ex-directory numbers

Wednesday 2 October 2019 | 13:21 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS said it has concluded its scrutiny of Tele2, saying the operating has taken corrective action after it erroneously published confidential telephone numbers on directory information websites in late 2018. PTS said Tele2 has learned from the incident and has begun work to improve its security. The operator had not discovered the breach for several months and had taken until April to report it to PTS, in breach of the 24-hour rule.
