Cloud communications company Twilio disclosed a new data breach stemming from a June 2022 security incident where the same attackers behind the August hack accessed some customers' information.

Twilio says this was a "brief security incident" on June 29. The attacker used social engineering to trick an employee into handing over their credentials in a voice phishing attack.

The stolen credentials were then used "to access customer contact information for a limited number of customers."

"The threat actor's access was identified and eradicated within 12 hours. Customers whose information was impacted by the June Incident were notified on July 2, 2022," the company revealed on Thursday.
