73M AT&T customers have had their personal data, including passcodes, leaked online

Telecommunications giant AT&T has confirmed that 7.6 million current and 65.4 million former customers have had their personal data compromised. The data stolen isn’t uniform, but may include, as AT&T detailed, “full name, email address, mailing address, phone number, social security number, date of birth, AT&T account number and passcode.”

AT&T passcodes are four-digit pins, and those belonging to the 7.6 million current customers who had theirs compromised have been reset. AT&T has reached out to everyone affected with an email or letter.
