T-Mobile reports 37M customers’ data hacked

T-Mobile informed US regulators that a bad actor gained access to data on roughly a third of the company’s 110 million customers. The breach, which was active for approximately six weeks before being discovered and then shut down within 24 hours, reportedly did not access the most sensitive data, such as financial data. Customers were informed that hackers did not gain access to full data sets, though information compromised can still be useful for hackers for phishing and identity theft.
