T-Mobile has confirmed to Android Police that it has closed a data breach operation that may have harvested a small group of customers’ phone numbers, number of lines per account and call diagnostics.

By and large, however, it seems that the scale of impact both in terms of severity and range is relatively minimal this time – there are many tobit attacks like this that we are not allowed to report on – but T -Mobile has proven to be a frequent victim as it has been hit by at least one major attack each year. In fact, it was another hit in March.
