Rowley’s data leaked in cyberattack


by Asha Javeed (Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s identification card number, his driver’s permit number and his passport number have been found to be compromised in TSTT’s data breach.

The Excel document also has his birth date and a PO box address for him as Prime Minister.

Guardian Media obtained a copy of the 6GB of data from TSTT which was uploaded to the dark web, following a cyberattack on the company on October 9, and was able to verify this. The data bundle includes scans, a list of names and credentials.

Rowley was asked to comment and was sent a copy of the information which Guardian Media was able to source and verify, but up to late yesterday did not respond.

The Prime Minister is one of hundreds of customers whose data has been posted online following the data breach at the telecommunications company.

The data has names, home addresses, email addresses, cell phone numbers, birth certificates, passport numbers, identification cards, receipts, internal emails, as well as credentials.
