Boost Mobile, a virtual mobile network owned by Sprint, has confirmed
hackers have broken into an unknown number of customer accounts.

The company quietly posted a notification of its data breach almost
exactly two months after March 14, when Boost said the breach

" experienced unauthorized online account activity in which
an unauthorized person accessed your account through your Boost phone
number and PIN code," said the notification. "The Boost
Mobile fraud team discovered the incident and was able to implement a
permanent solution to prevent similar unauthorized account activity."
