AT&T Paying $25M to Settle US Action Over Data Breaches

WASHINGTON (AP) - AT&T is paying $25 million in a settlement with federal regulators over data breaches at call centers in Mexico, Colombia and the Philippines that compromised customer data for some 280,000 U.S. customer accounts.

The breaches occurred from Nov. 4, 2013 to April 21, 2014 at a call center in Mexico, from Feb. 14 to July 14, 2014 in Colombia and from May 20 to December 2014 in the Philippines, the FCC said. Most customers were Spanish-speaking U.S. residents.
