Hackers attempts to hack AT&T wireless users failed

Yesterday, AT&T acknowledged to customers that hackers have organised an attack against 1% of its wireless account customers. They send official email to their customers. No accounts were successfully breached.

"We recently detected an organized and systematic attempt to obtain information on a number of AT&T customer accounts, including yours...We do not believe that the perpetrators of this attack obtained access to your online account or any of the information contained in that account.." Said in Email.
A spokesman Mark Siegel said that attackers attempt to use "auto-script technology" to find whether AT&T telephone numbers were linked to online AT&T accounts. He didn't elaborate, but said an investigation is continuing.

"We do not know the intent, but we are concerned they may attempt to deceive our customers by sending them unsolicited texts or emails claiming to be from AT&T and requesting sensitive personal information like Social Security numbers or passwords,” Siegel said.

"Our investigation is ongoing to determine the source or intent of the attempt to gather this information,"he added.
