Subject: T-Mobile USA's servers breached, subscriber data stolen?

Filed under: T-MobileT-Mobile has yet to issue an official statement on the
matter, but word on the street is that hackers have found their way into
T-Mobile USA's inner workings and made off with a treasure trove of
information, including subscriber data, which would make sense considering
that parts of T-Mobile's website have been down for most of the day today.
The exact nature of the breach is unclear, but the alleged hackers say they
"have everything, their databases, confidental [sic] documents, scripts and
programs from their servers, financial documents up to 2009." They go on to
say that they've been in touch with the carrier's competitors trying to sell
the data, but have (thankfully) been turned away, so now they're looking to
hawk it to the highest bidder. If this is legit, we can't imagine that
trying to sell the data in a public forum is the wisest plan -- but then
again, we're not criminal masterminds, so maybe this is standard operating
procedure. Here's hoping they're brought down quickly and T-Mob gets to the
bottom of the breach.
