Over 2 Millions Account Numbers and Addresses Potentially Leaked — Mobile Hacked Again

A sign for a T Mobile store is seen in Manhattan New York

The third most popular mobile network in the U.S., T-Mobile, has suffered a data breach that affected more than two million of its customers.

The US telco said none of the customers' financial data or social security numbers were lifted and no passwords were compromised.

Users caught up in the breach would be contacted with further instructions, T-Mobile said, though the company didn't say how or when that would happen.

The breach was spotted on 20 August by the firm's cyber-security team, it said, and was plugged the same day. Once a hacker has your account number, phone number, and email address, it's easier for them to obtain your login information.

Big Ten places five teams in top 15 of AP preseason poll
This also represents the 60th time that Oklahoma has appeared in the preseason AP poll, second most behind Ohio State (65 times). As expected, Alabama will be No. 1 to begin the year in the preseason poll, which the AP released Monday.

The company is in the process of notifying customers affected by the breach. However, some customers' personal information - including name, billing zip code, phone number, email address, account number and account type - may have been exposed.

T-Mobile isn't really saying a great deal about the incident other than trying to downplay its severity and impressing on customers that it acted quickly to stop the attack. If you are a T-Mobile For Business or Metro PCS customer, just dial 611 from your mobile phone. The US telco says it informed law enforcement authorities about the breach. The letter also reminds “its always a good idea to regularly change account passwords.”.

"We truly regret that this incident occurred and are so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you", the announcement reads.
