T-Mobile says no evidence that hackers stole customer info

T-Mobile USA is investigating recent reports that hackers infiltrated its databases, pilfering valuable systems information and internal documents that they are now offering to sell to the highest bidder. But in a statement today, T-Mobile said that so far there is no evidence that any customer or subscriber information has been compromised. A T-Mobile spokesperson wrote:

Following a recent online posting that an alleged hacker apparently accessed T-Mobile servers, the company is conducting a thorough investigation and at this time has found no evidence that customer information, or other company information, has been compromised. Reports to the contrary are inaccurate and should be corrected. T-Mobile continues to monitor this situation and as a precaution has taken additional measures to further ensure our customers’ information and our systems are protected. As is our standard practice, customers can be assured if there is any evidence that customer or system information has been compromised, we would inform those affected as quickly as possible. more

It’s my belief that LTE and WiMax are going to have more of a distributed architecture. So you’ll be switching locally within the radio access part of the network.” more

Whitacre’s biggest challenge yet

I have to admit I was stunned by the news that Ed Whitacre has agreed to be chairman of the board for GM. It looks like retirement isn’t agreeing with the guy who spent the last 20-plus years building the smallest of the regional Bell companies, post-divestiture, into a telecom powerhouse that ultimately swallowed its former parent, AT&T.

Can Ed Whitacre work magic at GM? Granted, he’s the chairman of the board, not the chief executive officer, but Whitacre will still be on the hot seat if the current plans for restructuring GM, post-bankruptcy, into a more nimble and consumer-focused auto maker don’t work. more
