Unknown Number of Sprint Accounts Compromised

Mobile network operator Sprint has informed customers that some accounts have been hacked through Samsung’s “Add a Line” website. The compromised information includes names, addresses, phone numbers, device type & ID, account numbers, and add-on services.

Sprint said in a letter to affected customers, “Your account PIN may have been compromised, so we reset your PIN just in case in order to protect your account.” Sprint said that no information involved in the breach cold leave to identity theft or fraud but did include resources for customers to take to ensure they are not victims of fraud.

Unfortunately, Sprint has not said how many accounts were affected in total nor what the vulnerability was in the system that allowed hackers to gain access.
