Following vnunet.com's exposure of a BT Together online directory listing dial up numbers for private networks, the list has been pulled from the site.
BT's gaffe was revealed yesterday when a publicly accessible directory on the BT Together site listed a number of ex-directory remote dial-ups used to connect to private networks.
Internet users were concerned that the publication undermined the security of their networks by giving hackers an easy target access point.
But today the full 'internet service provider exclusion' list is no longer accessible, and numbers in the directory can only be verified if the full number is known.
BT spokesman Damian Peachey said: "We realised that this probably wasn't the best way to do the list, so we made access to the prohibited numbers more secure. We acted quickly to show that we are responsible about user security."
