40 million T-Mobile customers hit by US data breach
More than 40 million T-Mobile customers have been hit by a US data breach, the company has admitted. The breach only came to light following online reports last weekend that criminals were attempting to sell a large database containing T-Mobile customer data online. The company said its investigations identified approximately 7.8 million current T-Mobile postpaid customer accounts' information in the stolen files, as well as just over 40 million records of former or prospective customers who had previously applied for credit with T-Mobile. "We take our customers' protection very seriously and we will continue to work around the clock on this forensic investigation to ensure we are taking care of our customers in light of this malicious attack," the company said. Hackers previously stole the personal information of 15 million T-Mobile customers and potential customers in the US in 2015.There is no indication yet that former UK customers of T-Mobile have been hit by the data breach.
