T-Mobile USA is investigating claims that a hacker has broken into its data bases and stolen customer and company information. Someone anonymously posted the claims on the security mailing list Full Disclosure. In that post, the hacker claims to have gotten access to everything -- their databases, confidential documents, scripts and programs from their servers, financial documents up to 2009. They claim they have been in touch with the carrier's competitors trying to sell the data, but have been unsuccessful. They threatened to sell it to the highest bidder. T-Mobile later confirmed a hacker obtained a document.
