UK Internet and cable services provider BT is being investigated by The UK Information Commissioner Office (ICO) after claims that its email system exposes user credentials. The company has
defended itself, saying that it tested security issues before rolling out the new mail system, and has not received any data breach reports. As part of the investigation, ICO is examining BT's
data practices while it was in the process of shifting customer email accounts from a Yahoo-based system to its in-house system developed by Openwave Messaging.
