T-Mobile Data Breach Affects 15 Million Customers

It seems like every few weeks a new data breach is reported. The latest affects about 15,000,000 T-Mobile subscribers. Evidently Experian, a credit bureau, exposed customer data belonging to the mobile provider. The compromised data includes: customer names, birth dates, addresses, and SSNs. Those affected may or may not be current T-Mobile subscribers. It appears to be affecting consumers who applied for T-Mobile postpaid services or device financing between Sept. 1, 2013 and Sept. 16, 2015. This could make for a bad weekend for millions of folks.
