A former employee of a well-known company in Thailand was arrested for a data breach where he allegedly hacked and sold the data of 600,000 customers. The hacker, known as Woraphol, was taken into custody by the Technical Crime Suppression Division after the company the man worked for previously uncovered the data breach and contacted the police.
A search warrant was quickly issued and the hacker was arrested in the province of Samut Prakan just south of Bangkok. Police seized the man on the 32nd floor of the Kensington building on Thepparak Road.
