O2 disables web MMS

UK carrier O2 has disabled a web-based system for viewing MMS messages without an MMS-capable phone, according to a company spokesman. The move follows allegations that photos, messages and even phone numbers have leaked to the web through Google indexing, putting the privacy of its customers at risk. A person claiming to be a victim of the O2 technology says she is now receiving unwanted text messages.

The victim, whose MMS photos have circulated online, insists that she does not own a PC, and that the photos could only have appeared on the web when she posted them to a Facebook page. This followed their transfer through an e-mail link. O2 is said to have apologized for any privacy slips.
