Kroll Suffers Data Breach: Employee Falls Victim to SIM Swapping Attack
The Hacker News
Risk and financial advisory solutions provider Kroll on Friday disclosed that one of its employees fell victim to a "highly sophisticated" SIM swapping attack.
The incident, which took place on August 19, 2023, targeted the employee's T-Mobile account, the company said.
"Specifically, T-Mobile, without any authority from or contact with Kroll or its employee, transferred that employee's phone number to the threat actor's phone at their request," it said in an advisory.
