Hacker Selling T-Mobile Customer Data in Exchange for 6 Bitcoin

US operator T-Mobile is currently investigating the validity of the claims of a data breach that is said to involve the personal data of more than 100 million people, some of which have been put on sale for Bitcoin.

In an online forum, the hacker has asked for 6 Bitcoin worth $2.85 million at the current price of about $47,500 per BTC, as of writing, for a subset of data containing 30 million social security numbers and driver licenses. The rest of the data is being sold privately, the hacker told digital media outlet Vice, according to the report in Vice's Motherboard.

“We are aware of claims made in an underground forum and have been actively investigating their validity,” a spokesperson for the Bellevue, Washington-based wireless carrier said.

Besides social security numbers and driver's license information, the data included names, phone numbers, and physical addresses.
