Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) is being implicated in a fairly stunning scandal, in which it has admitted to having improperly accessed a reporter’s phone in search of the identity of a whistleblower. An individual had leaked confidential security information to her, regarding a story about vulnerabilities in the company’s customer identity systems.

The reporter had been writing an article detailing how the personal information of millions of Vodafone customers was easily accessible online, including home addresses, driver’s license information, and credit card details. A day after Natalie O’Brien published that story, her call and message data was apparently accessed in search of her source.
