    T-Mobile Investigating Claims of Massive Data Breach

    “Communications giant T-Mobile said today it is investigating the extent of a breach that hackers claim has exposed sensitive personal data on 100 million T-Mobile USA customers, in many cases including the name, Social Security number, address, date of birth, phone number, security PINs and details that uniquely identify each customer’s mobile device.

    On Sunday, Vice.com broke the news that someone was selling data on 100 million people, and that the data came from T-Mobile. In a statement published on its website today, the company confirmed it had suffered an intrusion involving “some T-Mobile data,” but said it was too soon in its investigation to know what was stolen and how many customers might be affected.”

    The Windows Registry acts as the configuration repository for the Windows operating system and contains hashed passwords, user customizations, configuration options for applications, system decryption keys, and more.

    The database files associated with the Windows Registry are stored under the C:\Windows\system32\config folder and are broken up into different files such as SYSTEM, SECURITY, SAM, DEFAULT, and SOFTWARE.”
