T-Mobile and MetroPCS users got their personal data hacked and there isn't much to be done

The company says its cyber-security team discovered and shut down unauthorized access to its customers' data on Monday, August 20.

While we wait for more information, concerned parties can peruse T-Mobile's statement in full and smooth their fears a little.

"However, you should know that some of your personal information may have been exposed, which may have included one or more of the following: name, billing zip code, phone number, email address, account number and account type (prepaid or postpaid)".

José Mourinho says he and Ed Woodward are getting on fine
He has to answer by his words. "If you want an explanation for Paul's words you must get him and ask him", Mourinho replied. Mourinho was asked about those comments but said it was Pogba's place to explain what he meant.

T-Mobile USA announced a security breach late last night. The malicious party did not get access to any financial data, social security numbers, or passwords.

T-Mo added that it had reported the breach to "authorities", without specifying who those authorities were. T-Mobile for Business and MetroPCS customers can call 611 from their phones. Although no hard numbers on the number of compromised users are given in the statement, T-Mobile answered an info request saying that less than 3% of its 77 million customers have been affected, or roughly 2 million people.

Fortunately, there is no financial data involved in the breach. If your account was affected by this data breach, you may want to change your account password to try and prevent any other issues. "We truly regret that this incident occurred and are so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you", T-Mobile said.
