UK Telecommunications Company O2 Fixes Phone Number Glitch

United Kingdom-based telecommunications company O2 has just fixed a glitch that allowed website owners to collect the phone numbers from people visiting their website on the O2 network. Lewis Peckover created a website with a script on it that showed the phone number of the visitor that came in from O2’s network. Since O2 fixed the problem now, I doubt it Lewis’ website will work any more. The Information Commissioner is currently investigating O2 over this issue.
