Computer hackers accessed credit card account data and other personal information of customers who purchased DSL equipment from AT&T's online store. The company is notifying fewer than 19,000 customers.

UPDATE (9/1/06). The breach was followed by a bogus phishing e-mail to those customers that attempted to trick them into revealing more info such as SSN and birthdate -- essential for crime of identity theft.
