T-Mobile has said that no server hack and data loss has occurred. Someone claiming to have breached the company’s security posted part of a document on Full Disclosure and was reportedly offering information for sale. T-Mobile says the information posted seems to have come from a stolen document instead. In a statement, the company told USA Today:
"Regarding the recent claim on a Web site, we’ve identified the document from which information was copied, and believe possession of this alone is not enough to cause harm to our customers."
"At this moment, we are unable to disclose additional information in order to protect the integrity of the investigation, but customers can be assured if there is any evidence that customer information has been compromised, we would inform those affected as quickly as possible."
Although T-Mobile says the information wasn’t obtained by hacking, it won’t say just how anyone obtained it.
