Yet Another Loss of Customer Data

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 29 (Reuters) - AT&T Inc. (T.N: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Tuesday that computer hackers illegally accessed credit card data and other personal information from several thousand customers who bought DSL equipment from AT&T's online store.

The phone company said it is notifying "fewer than 19,000" customers whose data was accessed over the past weekend.

The company said it noticed the hacking "within hours," immediately shut down the online store, notified credit card companies and is working with law enforcement agencies to investigate the incident and find the hackers.
