No mention on how many % of the customers..but this is totally unacceptable, with all the personal data, addresses, NRICs all stolen...

I think this may be one of the most sever if not the most sever leak in the history of Singapore telecoms. With the sensitivity of the data stolen many people could find themselves in a really deep sh*t.
