T-Mobile is having a bad Monday. They are investigating a post on an online forum that the poster claims to have personal data on up to 100 million T-Mobile customers that they are looking to sell.
Included in this data, according to the post, are social security numbers, names, physical addresses, phone numbers and drivers license information.
Motherboard reported that they have seen samples of the alleged stolen data, and they confirmed that it was accurate information on actual T-Mobile customers.
The owner of this data is asking for 6 bitcoin, or roughly $270,000 based on its value Monday for part of the data that includes 30 million social security numbers and drivers license info.
Here’s what T-Mobile said in a statement on Monday.
“We are aware of claims made in an underground forum and have been actively investigating their validity. We do not have any additional information to share at this time.”
