The UK paper, the Mail on Sunday, featured a security breach at Ladbrokes. The media storm is created by a person whose name is not known, however he goes by the name “Daniel”. So, Daniel who is believed to have previously worked for Ladbrokes and been able to access players’ information through a security breach, claims to have the information of over 10,000 Ladbrokes account holders up for sale. The information in question contains much more than the name and address of gamblers. It also includes account numbers, gambling history data and other personal details. To say more, Daniel claims he still has access to the rest of the company’s 4.5 million registered players, and that sounds like a fiasco for Ladbrokes.
It is known that at the moment Ladbrokes is working with police to investigate the situation and prevent similar situations in future.
