Moscow: Thousands of mobile phone text messages went public in Russia after an error occurred at one of the country`s top mobile operators.

About 8,000 text messages - complete with their telephone numbers - were detected by a search engine after being sent from Megafon`s website.

Megafon, which has 57 million customers across Russia, said the mass leak occurred because of a technical glitch with the site`s external administrator.
Russia`s Investigative Committee was looking into the incident.
