WASHINGTON — T-Mobile says it has confirmed that a recent cyberattack exposed the personal data of millions of its current, former and prospective customers.
The company said it began investigating late last week after someone took to an online forum offering to sell the personal information of cellphone users.
T-Mobile said Tuesday it has now confirmed the stolen data included personal information from about 7.8 million of its current postpaid customers, 850,000 prepaid customers and more than 40 million credit applicants.
The investigation revealed some of the leaked personal data includes Social Security numbers, birth dates, names and driver license information. The company stressed that it does not appear any customer credit card or payment info was leaked.
