Bell Canada Hacked – 1.9 Million Customers Affected

Bell Canada has confirmed they were hacked but they say it is not related to the global ransomware attack over the weekend. Bell says hackers accessed about 1.9-million customer email addresses and 1,700 names and phone numbers. They say they took immediate steps to secure their affected systems and they are working closely with the RCMP to identify who is responsible.  There’s no indication that any financial, password or other sensitive personal information was accessed by the hackers.
