T-Mobile breach exposes customer phone numbers, call info — what you need to know

If you get your wireless phone service from T-Mobile, be on the lookout for potential phishing attacks in the coming weeks. T-Mobile confirmed that it suffered a data breach, in which hackers could have accessed information about your wireless account.

The good news — no personal information such as names, addresses, social security numbers of credit information was compromised in the breach, T-Mobile says. But hackers could have seen subscribers’ phone numbers, number of lines on their account, and some call information. That’s the sort of data that a hacker can use in phishing attempts to wheedle out other information like your passwords.
