Samsung has admitted that what it calls a “small number” of users could indeed read other people’s personal data following last week’s unexplained Find my Mobile notification.

Several Register readers wrote in to tell us that, after last Thursday’s mystery push notification, they found strangers’ personal data displayed to them.

Many readers, assuming Samsung had been hacked, logged into its website to change their passwords. Now the company has admitted that a data security breach did occur.

A spokeswoman told The Register: “A technical error resulted in a small number of users being able to access the details of another user. As soon as we became of aware of the incident, we removed the ability to log in to the store on our website until the issue was fixed.”
