BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

T-Mobile hacker says wireless carrier's security 'awful'


(Reuters) — The hacker who stole data of more than 53 million former and prospective customers of T-Mobile US Inc. said the wireless carrier's security was "awful," the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

John Binns, the 21-year-old American who took responsibility for the high-profile hack disclosed by the company last week, told the Journal he had used an unprotected router to access personal records of customers.

T-Mobile did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said last week it would investigate the data breach, with some T-Mobile customers also suing the company for damages in Seattle federal court.
