AT&T Admits Employee Accessed Customer Data

Posted by at 10:44 am on October 7, 2014

AT&T recently informed about 1,600 customers of a breach in their personal data.

An unauthorized AT&T employee may have obtained driver’s license numbers, Social Security numbers, and information about the AT&T services to which those customers subscribed.

“Unfortunately, we recently learned that one of our employees did not follow our strict privacy rules and inappropriately obtained some customer information. This individual no longer works at AT&T and we are directly contacting the limited number of affected customers,” said an AT&T spokesperson.

AT&T said it informed the federal government, but stopped short of saying whether or not there’s an investigation into the matter. The breach occurred in August.
