2degrees closes sections of website for security improvements
New Zealand's newest mobile operator 2degrees has discovered a bug in the "Your 2degrees" and "Online Store" sections of its website and has taken them down temporarily.

The issue was only revealed at launch due to the high volume of traffic that visited the site within a matter of hours. There were nearly 100,000 unique visitors on the site on its first day live and the issue affected the web sessions of less than 100 people during this time.

Those people who experienced the issue were able to see only the contact details of another person on the site at the same time.

The company issued an announcement that says "Above all else 2degrees values the privacy of our customers and so until resolved the Your 2degrees and the Online Store sections of our website will be unavailable until further notice."

No other 2degrees services are impacted by this issue. Customers are still able to purchase and activate SIMs, make calls and send texts.
