The same data for about 7.8 million current T-Mobile customers who pay for phone service in monthly bills also appears to be compromised.

No phone numbers, account numbers, PINs, passwords or financial information from the nearly 50 million records and accounts were compromised, it said.

It’s just the latest data breach to hit T-Mobile in recent years but experts say the sheer numbers far exceed the previous breaches.
