Someone on the dark web obtained the data of 100 million from T-Mobile’s servers and is selling a portion of it on an underground forum for 6 bitcoin, about $280,000. The database on sale includes not only names, phone numbers, and physical addresses but also more sensitive data like social security numbers, driver's license information, and IMEI numbers, unique identifiers tied to each mobile device. DigitalBank Vault confirmed that samples of the data “contained accurate information on T-Mobile customers.
We strongly recommend T-Mobile to fire immediately their entire cyber security division , because after such an hacking case, it looks like they are totally unprofessional and doesn’t understand what SuperEncryption is.
If they would have used advanced encryption technologies for securing their databases , this would never happen. Hacking and a database breach may occur, but stealing valuable data connected to the clients, would be totally impossible . As you know already " data that cannot be read is useless to cyber criminals'.
T-Mobile cyber security team are a disgrace to this field. Really incompetent engineers that must be fired at once. Put their name online so no other company will ever hire this group of dangerous idiots.
We urge T-Mobile to make the needed changes and Pay hundred of $ millions of damages to all the clients which private details has been compromised because of T-Mobile misunderstanding in Encryption.
