T-Mobile sparks data security fears

T-Mobile has again hit the news as an undisclosed number of its UK subscribers that have unknowingly had their personal data sold on to third parties. In what looks like an inside job, It seems that unscrupulous employees have been collating details and selling them on to middlemen for unspecified sums of money. By selling on the data, it allowed other companies to call these people unsolicited, prior to their contracts finishing and offer them alternative deals on other networks.
