"We have everything, their databases, confidential documents, scripts and programs from their servers, financial documents up to 2009."
That’s the claim made by hackers posting on the Full Disclosure mailing list on Saturday, and referring to T-Mobile.
“We already contacted with their competitors and they didn’t show interest in buying their data -probably because the mails got to the wrong people- so now we are offering them for the highest bidder. Please only serious offers, don’t waste our time.”
To back it up, they posted some data they claimed was stolen, although none of it was sensitive.
However, the e-mail address given with the posting isn’t active, although it’s not known whether it was taken down by law enforcement or was simply never working, according to Information Week.
In a statement, T-Mobile responded:
"The protection of our customers’ information, and the safety and security of our systems, is absolutely paramount at T-Mobile. Regarding the recent claim, we are fully investigating the matter. As is our standard practice, if there is any evidence that customer information has been compromised, we would inform those affected as soon as possible."
