Tele2 Sweden fixes voicemail security weakness

Monday 25 March 2019 | 12:08 CET | News
Tele2 Sweden said it discovered a security shortcoming on 22 March that enabled unauthorised access to customers' voicemail inboxes. It has resolved the problem as far as retail customers are concerned and is in talks with enterprise customers using more complicated services to ensure they are using security features such as PIN codes. The operator said it has not heard of any cases of customers being affected by the problem.
