T-Mobile USA Pwned…. Info On Over 2 Million Customers Swiped

If you are a T-Mobile USA customer, then I have some really bad news for you. The company has disclosed that hackers have swiped the info of at least 2 million customers. Compromised information includes names, zip codes, phone numbers, email addresses, account numbers and account types. The company posted a message on its website, and is in the process of texting all affected customers. Apparently they were pwned on August 20 which means they disclosed this information somewhat quickly. So kudos to them on that front. But the fact that this happened at all continues to illustrate that companies need to do much more to protect the personal info of their customers.
