• Google Fi hacked.



    Google Fi, Google’s telecommunications service, has confirmed a data breach that is likely connected to the recent security incident at T-Mobile that exposed the personal data of 37 million customers.

    In an email sent to customers, Google said that the primary network provider for Google Fi informed them of a suspicious activity involving a third-party system that contained a “limited amount” of Google Fi customer data…

    Regarding the Google Fi data breach, Google says the threat actors gained access to data such as phone numbers, SIM card serial numbers, account statuses, account activation dates, and whether a subscriber has international roaming or unlimited SMS. The search giant claims that the attackers didn’t take customers’ personal information, payment card data, Google Fi passwords or PINs, or the contents of SMS messages or calls…

    ..as TechCrunch points out, one Google Fi customer claimed that their phone was briefly hijacked as a result of the attack (SIM swapping)
