US firm AT&T says data of 73 million customers leaked on ‘dark web’

Personal information belonging to millions of past and present AT&T customers has been leaked online, including Social Security numbers (SSNs), passcodes and contact details, the multinational company says.

SSNs are the gold standard of identity theft. Contact details would include phone numbers used for 2FA. So basically, everybody is fucked.

It is not known if the breach “originated from AT&T or one of its vendors”, the company said.

Of course not, so nobody is held accountable.

In addition to passcodes and SSNs, the hacked data possibly included email and mailing addresses, phone numbers and birth dates, AT&T added.

It just gets worse and worse if you choose to continue reading that far. It's fucking hilarious almost how meaningless it all is at this point.
