T-Mobile, which is still reeling from the disclosure last week that almost 50 million customer records were accessed by hackers, said Friday that an additional 5.3 million accounts had also been compromised.

In a filing with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Friday, T-Mobile  revealed it had identified 5.3 million additional current wireless subscribers who were affected by the breach as well as 667,000 more accounts of former customers.

The news brings the total to over 53 million people who were affected by the data breach.

Customers in this group had their names, addresses, dates of birth, and other personal information stolen.

The self-proclaimed “Un-carrier” said it had taken measures to prevent further damage.

“Our investigation is ongoing and will continue for some time, but at this point, we are confident that we have closed off the access,” the company said in a regulatory filing.
