Hilarious news about T-mobile reported in DerStandard.  A customer asked T-mobile support if they stored customers' passwords in clear text.  Answer came back: of course we do as our employees need access to them. Customer then asked the following.

 

 
Oh dear.  Not surprisingly this has spread, T-mobile in the USA has assured it's customers that it does encrypt their passwords.

Here is the first tweet.   When challenged about storing clear-text passowrds the rep replies, "I really do not get why this is a problem".  I think a bit of security training is needed here.
