Data Breach – and it’s AT&T this time!

AT&T - NWIDAAnother day, another data breach – but hey… it’s not who you think!

This time over 70 million customers data from AT&T was found on the dark web.

According to their own website (link here) 7.6 million current account holders and 65.4 million former account holders have been impacted. The breach occurred about two weeks ago.

AT&T said the information included in the compromised data set varies but could include social security numbers, full names, email and mailing addresses, phone numbers, and dates of birth, as well as AT&T account numbers and passcodes.

“Based on our preliminary analysis, the data set appears to be from 2019 or earlier,” the company said. “Currently, AT&T does not have evidence of unauthorized access to its systems resulting in theft of the data set.”

The company said it is “reaching out to all 7.6 million impacted customers and have reset their passcodes,” via email or letter, and that it plans to communicate with both current and former account holders with compromised sensitive personal information. It said it plans to offer “complimentary identity theft and credit monitoring services” to those affected by the breach.

External cybersecurity experts have been brought in to help investigate, it added.
