Sprint Had A Breach Of Customer Info-Many people who use Sprint wireless phone service are learning their accounts were compromised through the Samsung website.

A report says Sprint sent letters to affected customers telling them about the breach discovered last month. Sprint confirmed the breach and said credit card and social security numbers were not compromised because they're encrypted.

However, sensitive information like address, phone numbers, and more were stolen. Sprint told customers they're not at "substantial risk" of becoming identity theft victims. Sprint says it reset customers' PIN codes to make sure their accounts are secure.

The breach apparently happened late last month. The big concern is Sprint leaving out crucial details on the hack like how many accounts are affected, how long the information was exposed, and how the hackers got into a supposedly highly secure site like Samsung’s.

Woman Hunts Down People Who Stole Her Car And Steals It Back

I know the police don't really want us fighting crime. They certainly don't want us doing any of the heavy lifting but I imagine it's pretty damn satisfying when you do. 

There's a woman namedDanielle Renoin Kansas City, Missouri and unfortunately last Tuesday night, she stopped at a convenience store and left her SUV out front running. She was only inside for about a minute when she watched three women steal her SUV. 

Danielle wasn't happy and filed a police report but decided she wasn't going to sit this one out and did a little investigating herself. So instead of canceling her credit cards that were in the SUV, she left them open and tracked how the thieves were using them.

Over the course of the next two days, she monitored where the thieves were going. Eventually, they used the cards at a gas station near Danielle's house and she rushed there to ask for information.

A clerk said she heard the women talking about going to Applebee's. So Danielle headed to the Applebee's nearby, sat down, and waited. Sure enough, the thieves drove up in her SUV and walked in.

Danielle then did what anyone of us would have done. Stole back her SUV and then called the cops. If that wasn't enough, she then live-streamed the arrest on Facebook.

The cops went to the Applebee's, and the women were arrested.

The events are set to take place in select cities on October 19th.
