Former Telecom Giant Worker Pleads Guilty To Stealing Info
Verizon subscribers will be disappointed to know that their call records and location data is at risk. Daniel Traeger, a former employee of the telecom giant has pleaded guilty to felony charge for selling call records and location data over a period of five years. According to Daniel Traeger, the data was sold to an unnamed private investigator. Daniel Traeger accessed company records to obtain company’s private call records.



Back in 2009 Daniel Traeger,who worked in Alabama, promised to provide the information of Verizon customers to a private investigator. Daniel Traeger was not authorized to access the customer information but he illegally accessed the customer information using the company computers. For this purpose he used two different internal systems. First he accessed customers’ call records and then he pinged their mobile phones in order to find their location. Finally he compiled the data consisting of call records and locations into spreadsheets. He then handed over this information to the private investigator. Daniel Traeger started selling information in 2009 and kept on selling information until he was caught in 2014.

In the beginning he charged $25 per record or $50 per month and by the time he was caught he had been paid $10,000 in total. In 2013 he was making $750 by selling ten to fifteen records per month. The exact number of phone records sold is still unknown but according to a Verizon representative, “It appears that fewer than 500 customers' information may have been accessed in 2014.” He further said, “We worked with the FBI on this matter, and they caught the criminal.”

Few days back Yahoo! announced that over five hundred million user accounts were hacked in 2014 and now its Verizon’s turn.
