Phone carrier T-Mobile is investigating a forum post that claims to sell a significant cache of user data that the seller claims represents 100 million users. The seller further claims that the hoard came from T-Mobile servers.
The data includes social security numbers, phone numbers, names, physical addresses, unique IMEI numbers, and driver's licenses. Motherboard has verified the data contains accurate information on T-Mobile users. The seller is asking for six bitcoin, around $270,000, for a subset of the data containing 30 million social security numbers and driver licenses. (Joseph Cox / Motherboard)
