T-Mobile confident no ongoing risks to user data from recent hack

The third largest U.S. wireless carrier last week said personal data of more than 40 million former and prospective customers was stolen along with data from 7.8 million existing customers. In another update, which came days after the U.S. Federal Communications Commission opened a probe into the breach, T-mobile revealed that 5.3 million additional wireless subscribers and 667,000 more accounts of former customers were impacted, bringing the total to more than 53 million. John Binns, a 21-year-old hacker who stole data of T-Mobile customers, said the company’s security was “awful”, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
