verizonMillions of Verizon customer records have been exposed by an Israeli technology company, a ZDNetreport claimed last night. According to the report, as many as 14 million Verizon customers who called the company’s customer service in the past six months may have their data exposed.

Verizon has now confirmed that 6 million records were compromised by Nice Systems – carrier’s partner company that handles customer service calls.
