Hackers have stolen personal information on about 15 million T-Mobile US customers and applicants.The breach was at a unit of the credit agency Experian, which T-Mobile uses to process information on subscribers.
Names, birth dates and social security numbers are among data stolen, but not financial details, the firms said.Chief executive John Legere said his company would review its link with Experian. “Obviously I am incredibly angry about this data breach,” he said.
Subscribers who were credit-checked between 1 September 2013 and 16 September 2015 are most at risk.In a statement, Mr Legere said: “I take our customer and prospective customer privacy very seriously. This is no small issue for us.
“I do want to assure our customers that neither T-Mobile’s systems nor network were part of this intrusion and this did not involve any payment card numbers or bank account information.
“Experian has assured us that they have taken aggressive steps to improve the protection of their system and of our data.”
