Visible confirms customer reports of hacking and fraud attempts



After customers of the Verizon-owned budget mobile carrier Visible took to social media to complain about hacking and fraud attempts, the company has now confirmed that security breaches were carried out on its users by hackers who obtained their credentials from “outside sources”.

As reported by The Verge, the mobile carrier said that it is in the process of working to “mitigate the issue” though it did not provide any details on the steps it has employed to do so. Visible customers recently began reporting that unauthorized charges from the company had appeared on their PayPal and credit card statements while others received emails saying the password or address of their accounts had been changed.
