Verizon Data of at Least Six Million Users Leaked Online

According to Verizon, no data was accessed by an external source, but at the end of the day, the data was exposed publicly and discovered by a security researcher.  I do not believe a definitive statement can be made as to who may or may not have discovered and harvested data.

I recommend every Verizon customer at least call Verizon support and change your pin.  You should also remain diligent in checking for unusual account activity.
