T-Mobile confirms hack as customer data allegedly goes on sale online

Last week, hackers managed to breach some of T-Mobile’s internal servers claiming millions of personal data had been put online for sale.

The company had been criticised for a conflicting statement after a threat actor allegedly put up for sale the personal details of millions of T-Mobile customers on a cybercrime forum on Saturday, August 14.

The hacker’s ad referenced 30 million T-Mobile customers, but in a subsequent interview with news site Motherboard, the individual claimed the data was part of a larger package containing details for 100 million T-Mobile customers.
