T-Mobile flaw exposed customer account data

T-Mobile’s website faced a bug that exposed the personal account details of many of its customers.

If attackers had a customer’s cell phone number, they were able to look up full names, mailing addresses, billing account numbers and some information about tax ID numbers.

They could also access account info, such as whether bills were past due or service was suspended.

The bug has been fixed, but right now it’s unknown how long the information was exposed or how many customers might have been affected.
