T-Mobile is informing customers of a data breach that saw a “bad actor” obtain “limited types of information” from user accounts. T-Mobile says that it shut down this bad actor’s access to the data within 24 hours, and that system fallbacks in place “prevented the most sensitive types of customer information from being accessed.”
T-Mobile announces another data breach
T-Mobile announced this security breach in an article on its website today. This marks the latest in a string of data breaches that have impacted the company. The biggest of those data breaches occurred in August of 2021 and impacted over 50 million people. In that data breach, personal data, including social security numbers, was accessed by the hacker.
