Hackers have obtained credit card details of 19,000 online shoppers from telecoms company AT&T. The US company said it had notified shoppers at its online store of the security breach, which affected people buying high-speed DSL internet items. The breach in security happened over the weekend, the company said, and online stores were quickly shut down in response.
While there were no indications that fraudulent transactions had been carried out before the stolen information came to light, AT&T said that it would reimburse customers for any fraudulent transactions and pay for any necessary credit services.
