CNET reported last week that hackers had stolen the personal data of 15 million T-Mobile customers and would-be customers by going after Experian, which processes the wireless carrier's credit checks.
Experian said last Thursday that the breach took place from September 1, 2013, to September 16, 2015. The stolen data included names, birth dates, addresses, and Social Security and drivers' license numbers, but not credit card or payment information.
Experian is offering two years of credit monitoring and identity protection services through ProtectMyID, which it owns. Any T-Mobile customers, regardless of whether they were affected, can take advantage of the offer here.
And the high profile breaches just keep on coming . . .
