Philmore is at it, again

Well, it seems as though Philmore Productions, the makers of Philmore Voice mail, and the depleted Net by phone are at it again.  Apparently, on December 29, 2015: the company apparently put out personal information about a customer which included how many messages in one box, billing dates, when they paid, and who knows what else.  While billing dates and messages in ones box may not be considered personal information, add it all up, and you have something you can use to harm someone by reminding them they don't do this timely, or that timely, and make them miserable.  We've talked about this often on our blog and podcast on keeping information private.  

We already know that Philmore  productions can't seem to  keep their database in control of their network.  Now, the revelation of the company now giving out information about things most companies wouldn't talk about is coming to light.  You think by now that Philmore Productions would not want to be part of the problem, and the JRN was looking to get a box to put our podcast up specifically, but now, we won't be doing any such thing.  

Whatever happened to the customers Philmore was going to get after he saw that mytelespace was offline?  Did they not go over there? Why? Because mytelespace administration does not divulge anyone's personal information.  One admin may do a show and do what he wants on his show, but he does not give out personal information on his show since taking this role.  This is the last straw, and people should wonder what other info this company may put out about people.  

You'll ask "I didn't hear anything, so why should i care?"  You have a great question.  You should care because the info may be yours, because he holds on to info long after you have left as a customer.  Philmore Productions does not recycle data like most companies do when customers leave.  When I signed up for a box some years ago, he still had my credit card info, and i haden't been there for years.  Now, it'll be some more years before i ever decide to go back. 

A user did confirm to the network that this took place and it was a couple of Philmore Productions customers.  We are not going to divulge who, but it is now confirmed as of the late evening of the 31st.  The Jared Rimer network is saddened by this and was hooping for a turnaround.  Philmore has a lot to say for themselves, and we are not picking sides.  This is not right, and needs to change immediately.  What other security issues are there we don't know about?   What should we expect out of this small company in the accompanying year?  I expect users are going to get breached big time this year over there, and the company will have to pay.  They will pay big time this next year.
