T-Mobile is often in the news for the wrong reasons. Yesterday, a glitch in the company’s system showed personal customer information to the wrong account holders. And now, there is fear that freshly leaked data that is available online could help bad actors gain access to sensitive information.
In T-Mobile’s defense, the carrier cannot be blamed for the latest breach. Apparently, a third-party retailer called Connectivity Source had more than 90GB of its data leaked and put on the hacking forum BreachForums. Connectivity Source is one of the largest T-Mobile authorized retailers, with hundreds of stores across the United States.
