Solid security there, T-Mobile. But then again, there are no consequences to not giving a shit about security, so whatever, right?

"T-Mobile has 76 million customers, and an attacker could have ran a script to scrape the data (email, name, billing account number, IMSI number, other numbers under the same account which are usually family members) from all 76 million of these customers to create a searchable database with accurate and up-to-date information of all users," Saini, who is the founder of startup Secure7, told Motherboard in an online chat.

"Could have" Uh-huh. How about we assume that they HAVE?

Edit : Oh look
UPDATE, Oct. 10, 5:14 p.m. ET: After this story was published, a blackhat hacker who asked to remain anonymous warned Motherboard that the recently patched bug had been found and exploited by other malicious hackers in the last few weeks.

Surprise surprise.
