AT&T Customer Data Accessed in Security Breach
Jun 13, 2014, 12:41 PM by Eric M. Zeman
AT&T recently confirmed that a third-party contractor violated its security protocols and accessed customer data, including Social Security numbers and call records. The breach occurred between April 9 and April 21, but was only revealed by AT&T this week. The persons involved in the breach were employed by a service that unlocks cell phones. AT&T said in a statement provided to customers that it believes their records were only accessed by the vendor employees to help facilitate the unlocking process. "We recently learned that three employees of one of our vendors accessed some AT&T customer accounts without proper authorization," said AT&T in a statement. "This is completely counter to the way we require our vendors to conduct business. We know our customers count on us and those who support our business to act with integrity and trust, and we take that very seriously. We have taken steps to help prevent this from happening again, and we have reported this matter to law enforcement." AT&T would not say how many customers were affected, but has already alerted them via email. California law requires problems like this to be reported when more than 500 customers are involved. AT&T didn't say if the breach was limited to its customers in California or if the breach was more widespread. AT&T has more than 100 million customers across the U.S.
