O2 sends phone numbers to Web Sites

Oops.

Quote:
Mobile provider O2 has apologised for an error with its service that resulted in some customers' phone numbers being shared with websites they visited while browsing on 3G.

Whenever a mobile user accesses a website from their phone they share information about that device with the site.
It usually includes the web browser and the model of phone being used to allow the website to display its information in a way that suits your device.
However, O2's mobile network in the UK was also including the phone number of some users in the data.
