On Kontakt 24 we received signals about problems in the functioning of the My Tauron website. After logging into the account, customers saw the data of other people using the services of this energy company. “Immediately after identifying this problem, we turned off the website in the version available on computers,” Elżbieta Bukowiec, spokeswoman for Tauron Sprzedaż told TVN24 Biznes.
Tauron’s customers have seen other people’s data
In the afternoon, Tauron’s customers informed about an unusual error on the company’s website. “After logging in to My Tauron (system for managing electricity contracts in Tauron), I saw the data of completely strangers from foreign locations. After clicking on the contract details, I can see the data of people, telephone number, contract number, payer number, e-mail address, I can also make changes to this data, see the balance, unpaid invoices. After refreshing, the data of other people are loaded (original spelling – ed.) “- Piotr wrote on Kontakt 24.
He added that he called the company’s hotline. “They know there is a problem, but the consultants are unable to answer the question of what actions have been taken,” he said.
In turn, Ms Beata wrote that “after logging in to My Tauron, we see the data of other customers, not our own! After logging in again, I see someone else again – unacceptable lack of security of our data”.
“Technical problems” in Tauron
