As the Telekom subsidiary announced after an internal data breach investigation, attackers got their hands on full names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and, in some cases, driver’s license and identity information.
Hackers will not see phone numbers, account numbers, or access data or financial information. However, T-Mobile advises its customers to change their PIN.
7.8 million contracts and 850,000 prepaid customers are affected by hacker access, according to the announcement. In addition, they obtained just over 40 million records from previous or potential clients who had applied for a contract. The access point for illegal server access was found and closed.
Last weekend, strangers claimed in an online forum that they had personal data of more than 100 million T-Mobile customers and put it up for sale.
The T-Mobile stake was initially listed on the Nasdaq in red, but is now making its way into the profit territory. The newspaper sometimes reported 0.07 percent to $140.77.
