It's True!! T-Mo Has Been Hacked!!

Lois Lane back again!! It appears T-Mo has made something of an admission!

Here's an update, courtesy of The Washington Post newspaper, released at 10:32 pm, this evening.

The statement from T-Mo is as follows:

"Regarding the recent claim on a Web site, we've identified the document from which information was copied, and believe possession of this alone is not enough to cause harm to our customers. We continue to investigate the matter, and have taken additional precautionary measures to further ensure our customers' information and our systems are protected. At this moment, we are unable to disclose additional information in order to protect the integrity of the investigation, but customers can be assured if there is any evidence that customer information has been compromised, we would inform those affected as quickly as possible."

Basically, this means that it is true. T-Mo was hacked and they did lose some of our information, in the process. They, naturally, are not ready to say that this is a bad thing. They would love to save face and say they did get hacked, but it isn't that serious. However, I would be inclined to say that if someone would go through all the trouble to hack into your system they would not steal useless information. They have made the admission and now they need to handle this situation, appropriately.

I'm keeping my ear to the streets and any further developments will be yours as soon as I can get my hands on it!

Until later,
