They claim that no financial information was stolen, and the employees of the company have been terminated. However, AT&T is urging their customers to change their account passwords as a precaution. One thing that some of you may find interesting is that ATT has not released the number of people affected by this breach. They are only saying that some customer accounts were affected. I do not know you, but this does not make me feel very safe, being that I am an ATT customer myself.
Security experts say that while there was apparently no direct financial effect on customers, the breach is still concerning.
Make sure that, if you are an ATT customer, that you go ahead and change your account password, and monitor your account activity. Including credit card or other financial payment information.
