T-Mobile announced a security breach on Thursday affecting some of its prepaid customers in the United States.
The company announced Bleeping Computer on Thursday that it was a "small number of customers" affected by the breach that was discovered earlier this month. According to T-Mobile, customer names, addresses, telephone numbers, bank account numbers, tariff plans and planning functions were disclosed. More confidential information such as passwords, financial information or social security numbers was not affected.
T-Mobile told affected customers this week that its cybersecurity team "detected and closed malicious, unauthorized access to their accounts." Shortly thereafter, the telecommunications company reported the prosecution of the infringement.
If your information has been violated, T-Mobile would have had to send an SMS today to notify you. However, if you changed provider or number, you may not have received it. You can contact T-Mobile at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 61
"We greatly regret the occurrence of this incident and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you," T-Mobile said in a statement.
T-Mobile was hit by another data breach in August 2018, and the account information of nearly 2 million customers was stolen by hackers. Account details such as telephone numbers and e-mail addresses were violated, but no confidential information such as social security numbers was compromised.
