The number of users whose personal information might have been compromised in a recent cyber attack of T-Mobile has climbed to 53 million, as the telecommunication company is hit by a pair of class-action lawsuits. T-Mobile announced Friday it had discovered that another 5.3 million current customers and 667,000 former customers also had their information stolen. The wireless carrier is now up against two class action lawsuits filed by upset customers, Bloomberg reported on Friday. Both lawsuits accuse T-Mobile of violating the California Consumer Privacy Act which allows any Californian the right to see all the information a company has saved on them, as well as a full list of all the third parties that data is shared with. One of the lawsuits also accuses T-Mobile of violating the Washington State Consumer Protection Act for having poor data security.According to the lawsuit Espanoza v. T-Mobile USA Inc., the plaintiffs and the class action members contend their identities are at risk because of neglect on the part of T-Mobile. The plaintiffs are also concerned with the monetary costs and the "time spent mitigating the effects of the Data Breach, including time spent dealing with actual or attempted fraud and identity theft."
