As if AT&T didn't have enough troubles already trying to save its proposed merger with T-Mobile USA, this is embarrassing. Allowing your accounts to be hacked is bad enough but hacking that funds terrorist groups is worse. One wonders what level of security the phone company has and whether it is making sufficient effort to stop intruders. The hacking wasn't an overnight affair. It went on for two years and variations of it date back 12 years. One could make a defensible claim that AT&T hasn't been serious enough about security and if not, what about the privacy of millions who use its network?
