T-Mobile Czech Republic has been hit by a breach, and this time it isn’t from an outside hacker; it was from an employee with privileged access. This employee was a part of a small team with access to customer data and he managed to steal data of 1.5 Million T-Mobile customers. The insider was subsequently caught when attempting to sell the information online, but T-Mobile hasn’t shared any more details regarding the breach due to an ongoing police investigation by the Czech Police’s Unit for Combating Organized Crime.
T-Mobile assured all of its customers that the data stolen was purely for marketing purposes, and contained no sensitive information like location, traffic, or passwords. The Czech media is saying that this is the largest breach in the Czech Republic’s history, and T-Mobile has said it will inform its customers of any further developments in the investigation.

A hybrid GozNym Trojan has made its way targeting U.S. banks, redirecting users to rogue websites to hijack their accounts. GozNym was detected in April 2016 as a Trojan that used web injections, that relies on malicious DLLs loaded in the user’s browser to show overlays on top of the page, when visiting a Polish banking portal.
GozNym has been launched to attack four large U.S. banks, and now uses a technique called “redirection attacks” which occur when the malware redirects the user to a fake banking portal. What makes this particularly tricky is that the fake banking portal is a perfect replica of the real ones using the correct URL and the bank’s real SSL certificate in the browser’s address bar.
