T-Mobile Hacked by TeaMp0isoN, Administrators and Staff Exposed

Posted on January 17, 2012


The infamous hacktivist collective TeaMp0isoN breached the official website of T-Mobile, one of the largest wireless communications providers in the world, leaking sensitive login information that belongs to their staff and administrators.

The hackers posted a document on Pastebin to prove the success of the operation, but we’ve contacted them to find out the details and the main reason why T-Mobile is a target.

“They are known to be supporting the Big Brother Patriot Act law. Any cell phone company doing so I would see as a target,” said one of the hackers.

“One of the main reasons for the hack is because they are corrupted, but we also wanted to show how weak their security is.”

The hackers found SQL injection vulnerabilities on t-mobile.com and newsroom.t-mobile.com and managed to get a hold of the names, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords of the administrators and staff members.
