Liberty hacked?

Anyone else receive this SMS?



From 087085101209984

Reserving for when the news hits. I'm not sure what the message means - ransomware that damaged/encrypted their data (for which they likely have backup - easily remedied) or data stolen for which they are demanding $$ to destroy.

Why do you people even have products with them?

Hopefully insurance and not investments.

GDPR states that they should inform the customers as part of the process, besides I'd rather know than not even if GDPR doesn't apply here. Enables you as a customer to be more aware of emails from thanking for info
