T-Mobile Disclosed Data Breach

According to T-Mobile's statement, the account information of a number of prepaid services' customers has been accessed by an unauthorised third party. No financial data or passwords were compromised, but names, billing addresses, phone numbers, account numbers, rate plans and features have been leaked. The incident has been discovered early November and T-Mobile informed affected customers about it last week.

T-Mobile previously suffered a data breach in August 2018, when the account information (including names, email addresses, phone numbers) of around two million customers got stolen.
