Moscow, July 19 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Thousands of mobile phone text messages went public in Russia after an error occurred at one of the country’s top mobile operators.

About 8,000 text messages - complete with their telephone numbers - were detected by a search engine after being sent from Megafon’s website.

Megafon, which has 57 million customers across Russia, said the mass leak occurred because of a technical glitch with the site’s external administrator.

Russia’s Investigative Committee was looking into the incident.
