T-Mobile Says Hackers Stole 7.8 Million Customer’s Personal Info
On Wednesday T-Mobile said it was conducting an investigation into a recent cyber attack in which 7.8 million of its postpaid customer's personal information was compromised. In a statement, T-Mobile said it learned of the attack last week after a post on an online forum claimed that personal information from about 7.8 million customers was leaked. In addition, 850,000 prepaid customers and 40 million records of former T-mobile customers and prospective customers such as those who had applied for service were also stolen.
T-Mobile said the data leaked includes customer’s first and last names, dates of birth, social security numbers and driver’s license information.
