T-Mobile has a major data leak in the United States

20.08.2021 News

As a result of a recent cyber-attack on the servers of the American mobile operator T-Mobile US, hackers stole the personal data of millions of users, said a subsidiary of the German telecommunications giant Deutsche Telekom on Wednesday, August 18. The stolen information included names and surnames, social security numbers, birth information, driver’s license data, of both current and former customers. However, the attackers did not get access to such financial information as credit card numbers and passwords, the company said, according to dpa.

According to T-Mobile US, the hacker attack affected about 7.8 million contract customers and about 40 million former and potential customers who had previously applied for the services of the operator. The data of about 850 thousand users of subscription tariffs are also disclosed. Meanwhile, the vulnerability that led to the data leak has already been fixed. T-Mobile US asks customers to change passwords and PINs.

T-Mobile US is investigating the incident. It started after a leak of the mobile operator’s personal data was announced on one of the Internet forums. The online platform Vice was the first to report about the hacking of the operator’s servers and data leakage. According to it, the data of almost all American customers of T-Mobile, which is more than 100 million people, was stolen.

In the last few months, hacker attacks have become more frequent around the world. For example, on August 10, hackers managed to hack the cryptocurrency platform Poly Network and steal hundreds of millions of dollars. However, they later returned the stolen item. The US government has urged companies to invest more in cybersecurity measures.
