T-Mobile's data was compromised.

T-Mobile confirmed it was hit in a data breach that has reportedly affected 100 million of its wireless customers.

According to a report from Vice, someone on an underground forum claimed to have obtained data of more than 100 million people from T-Mobile’s servers.

The data includes Social Security information, physical addresses and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) numbers that uniquely identify individual mobile devices, the report said.

In a statement emailed to USA TODAY on Monday, T-Mobile initially said it was actively investigating the claims made within the forum but had no additional information to share.

In an updated statement emailed Monday afternoon, T-Mobile confirmed a data breach happened, but it could not determine whether customer data was affected.

T-Mobile said it is confident the entry point used to gain access to its data has been closed. “This investigation will take some time but we are working with the highest degree of urgency,” T-Mobile said in its statement.
