The US-based telecom operator said in a blogpost that it was confident the entry point used to access the data had been closed. It did not confirm the number of affected records.

“We are conducting an extensive analysis alongside digital forensic experts to understand the validity of these claims, and we are coordinating with law enforcement,” the company said.

U.S.-based digital media outlet Vice earlier reported the claims of a data breach revealing that an online forum alleged that personal data of more than 100 million of its users was leaked.

According to the report in Vice’s Motherboard, the forum’s post does not mention T-Mobile, but the hacker told Vice they have obtained data of over 100 million people and that the data came from T-Mobile servers.
