T-Mobile disputes controversial hacking claims

/

San Francisco (CA) – T-Mobile USA has conceded that unspecified company data was recently posted on the Internet by unknown entities. However, the carrier continues to insist that sensitive customer information remains uncompromised.

“The document…has been determined to be a T-Mobile document though there is no customer information contained in the document. There is no evidence to indicate that the T-Mobile security system was hacked into nor any evidence of a breach,” the company claimed in a statement quote by PC World.

Although T-Mobile refused to disclose the nature of the data or how it was obtained, hackers boasted that they had snagged a wide variety of confidential documents.

“We have everything, their databases, scripts and programs from their servers, financial documents up to 2009,” the hackers wrote on the Full Disclosure mailing list.

The hackers also confirmed that they were attempting to sell the data to the “highest bidder.”

T-Mobile spokesperson Peter Dobrow told the Associated Press that an internal document may have been leaked, but declined to confirm if the allegedly compromised server names detailed on the mailing list were authentic.
