Bell Canada says an anonymous hacker has obtained some customer names and phone numbers – as well as email addresses.

Bell says the information included approximately 1.9 million active email addresses – and approximately 1,700 customer names and active phone numbers.

The company says there is no indication that any financial, password or other sensitive personal information was accessed – and the incident is not connected to the recent WannaCry cyberattack – which affected tens of thousands of companies, organizations and individuals in about 150 countries – when it struck on Friday.

Bell says it took immediate steps to secure affected systems – and has been working closely with the RCMP cyber crime unit in its investigation of the hack – as well as contacting affected customers.
