    Several days ago, we reported that AT&T had confirmed that a data breach occurred with some customers having their personal information revealed.

    Now, The Verge (via Ars Technica) is reporting that AT&T¬†is sending out letters to customers that had their data accessed by the hackers.¬†AT&T is therefore offering those¬†customers one year of free credit monitoring to help with any¬†identity theft issues. The letter by AT&T was posted by the California’s Office of the Attorney General.

    We still do not know how many accounts were accessed as AT&T has not released that information yet.
