What security can learn from the $15M Sprint employee breach

Federal prosecutors this week charged nine former Sprint employees with fraud and aggravated identity theft after learning they had cloned customer cell phone numbers to make $15 million worth of calls. According to the complaint from federal prosecutors, the individuals who have been charged worked at Sprint stores in the Bronx, Bergen, N.J., and Tampa, Fla., and used company computers to get confidential information about thousands of customers. The data was used to create the so-called ‘clone’ cell phones. Of the $15 million worth of calls, a large percentage of them were international calls, said prosecutors.
