Motherboard says it has seen samples of the data and confirmed they contain accurate information.
"T-Mobile USA. Full customer info," the seller told Motherboard in an online chat. The seller said they compromised multiple servers related to T-Mobile. On the underground forum the seller is asking for 6 bitcoin, around $270,000, for a subset of the data containing 30 million social security numbers and driver licenses. The seller said they are privately selling the rest of the data at the moment.
The seller notes that T-Mobile may have already found the breach.
"I think they already found out because we lost access to the backdoored servers," the seller said.
However, "It's backed up in multiple places."
T-Mobile issued the following statement...
"We are aware of claims made in an underground forum and have been actively investigating their validity. We do not have any additional information to share at this time."
