The company quietly posted a notification of its data breach almost exactly two months after March 14, when Boost said the breach happened.
"Boost.com experienced unauthorized online account activity in which an unauthorized person accessed your account through your Boost phone number and Boost.com 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."
