Hackers recently came out claiming to have stolen the data from 100 million T-Mobile customers. Now, T-Mobile has confirmed that there was a breach and that more than 40 million records were stolen. However, these were not just T-Mobile customers, as some records were from people who applied for a T-Mobile account in the past and previous customers.
T-Mobile issued a statement on its website where it addressed the hack. In it, the company said, “that a subset of T-Mobile data had been accessed by unauthorized individuals.”
As far as what data was acquired, T-Mobile said that some current, former, and prospective customers had their first and last names, date of birth, social security numbers, and driver’s license/ID information stolen.
