T-Mobile Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Massive Data Breach
T-Mobile is facing a class action lawsuit for its most recent data breach, in which hackers stole data on at least 47 million current, former, and prospective customers, including Social Security Numbers, according to a copy of the class action complaint filed in a Washington court.
The move comes after Motherboard broke news of the breach on Sunday. At the time, a hacker was advertising 30 million SSNs from an unnamed source. Motherboard verified the data was sourced from T-Mobile; T-Mobile itself later confirmed the contours of the breach.
Beyond granting the plaintiffs an unspecified amount of damages, the class action asks the court to prohibit T-Mobile from keeping "personal identifying information on a cloud-based database."
