AT&T has issued an apology today after revealing that personal information of AT&T customers has been improperly accessed by an employee of the company.
According to AT&T, the data accessed includes Social Security number information among other data. In its apology for the breach, AT&T has said it is working to contact affected customers individually and offering to not only refund any inappropriate charges incurred from the breach, but offer a free year of credit monitoring as well.
AT&T’s data breach differs from other recent attacks because it wasn’t outside sources hacking stored credit card information or other similar data, but someone inside AT&T. As more information on the breach is reported, be sure to keep checking back with Android and Me for the latest. In the meantime, let us know if you’ve received a letter from AT&T.
