One of the customers, Valgeir Matthías Pálsson, told that he found the situation “deplorable.” Valgeir said he had contacted the Data Protection Agency about the matter.

As reported earlier, 30,000 user passwords and 80,000 text messages—ranging from highly personal messages between individuals to sensitive information between MPs and senior policy makers—were hacked as well as other confidential customer data such as addresses.
