AT&T is investigating a leak earlier this month that dumped millions of customers' data, including personal information such as Social Security numbers, on the dark web.

The company said the leak happened roughly two weeks ago and it launched "a robust investigation supported by internal and external cybersecurity experts."

"Based on our preliminary analysis, the data set appears to be from 2019 or earlier," AT&T said in a statement Saturday.

It affects about 7.6 million current customers and about 65.4 million former customers.
