    Default Thailand government advises 3.3 million people of online gambling data crack

    Last week, the Thailand Computer Security Coordination Center sent out of a message to notify 3.3 million online gamblers in Thailand whose information may have been leaked. Some of the information includes date of birth, name, telephone numbers, banking information and government ID numbers.

    The Central bank of Thailand is also encouraging people who have used online gambling sites to change their banking passwords immediately along with cancelling current credit and debit cards.

    From TUNF.com:

    Population of Thailand is currently just under 70million, which would mean around 4.6% of the country’s people – and larger of its grown-up population – have opened online gambling accounts. ThaiCERT didn’t mention whether the 3.3m cases of Thais’ personal information comprised identical entries, i.e. if certain Thai people had opened online accounts with several gambling operators.

    Thailand’s government endures no gambling within its premises, with the exception of the state-run lottery, which is observed as so tedious that so-called ‘underground lotteries’ are way more famous with local residents.
    Here is a link to the warning issued by ThaiCERT: https://www.thaicert.or.th/alerts/user/2019/al2019us004.html

    Interesting the article was taken from Calvin, and ever so slightly spun and republished on TUNF

    I didn't catch anywhere if there was speculation as to which operator(s) were compromised, does anyone know?

    does it look like hacking game accounts? I mean, it's only a leak of personal data or people's funds may be at risk

    Well Calvin's article stated
    The data in question includes names, birth dates, government identification numbers, phone numbers and banking information.
    The country’s central bank chimed in by suggesting that Thais who have patronized gambling sites change their online banking or credit card passwords. But if they really want to be safe, Thais should cancel their existing debit/credit cards and request replacements.

    So it appears on the surface it may have been the game accounts database that was compromised, although it does not state that directly, but is a logical conclusion.
