The latter part of the year may have brought some new problems for T-Mobile related to computer security issues that they have suffered recently. According to a report by Tmo.Report, the company suffered a new security breach that would have affected the accounts of some of its clients.
Documents obtained by the website reveal that T-Mobile alerted some users to suspicious activity on their systems. As specified, an “unknown actor” would have had access to telephone numbers, user names, number of telephone lines in an account and other similar details regarding the contracted plans.
T-Mobile’s internal memo says there was no indication that usernames and passwords were leaked, or credit card numbers, something that clearly would have been a bigger problem for both the company and the affected customers.
Although the company has not issued a statement explaining the situation -as they did with the security breach of August 2021-, they have recognized the problem through social networks: the Twitter account responded to a user assuring that, if you have doubts, you should communicate internally and directly with the company.
T-Mobile is taking immediate steps to help protect all individuals who may be at risk from this cyberattack. If you have any questions, send us a DM and we can discuss steps to increase your account security. ^ KenStone
