15 million have personal information stolen in hack of T-Mobile data – Associated Press Oct. 1, 2015
Hackers have stolen personal information belonging to about 15 million T-Mobile wireless customers and potential customers in the U.S., including Social Security numbers, home addresses, birthdates and other personal information.
In the latest high-profile breach, the hackers got the information from credit reporting agency Experian, which T-Mobile uses to check the credit of consumers applying for phone plans and financing for devices. Experian said T-Mobile customers who applied between Sept. 1, 2013 and Sept. 16, 2015 may have had their information stolen.
Experian said it immediately notified law enforcement authorities after discovering the hack and that “there is no evidence to date that the data has been used inappropriately.”
