O2 = phishing extravaganza

Courtesy from Bitter Wallet comes the news that if you have a phone running on the O2 network, such as Giff Gaff or, er, O2, and you visit a website (or indeed open an email) via your phone, O2 helpfully gives YOUR PHONE NUMBER to the people you are visiting.

Nice, isn’t it?

If you are browsing this on a phone, check this link to see your number displayed.

Now you have to be wary of phone calls from phishers.

Oh lovely.
