Los Angeles Times: Equifax finds its big data breach hit an additional 2.4 million people

Los Angeles Times: Equifax finds its big data breach hit an additional 2.4 million people. “Equifax Inc. said Thursday that an additional 2.4 million Americans were affected by last year’s data breach, although not as much personal information was stolen from them. The credit reporting company said the attackers stole only the names and partial driver’s license numbers of these additional people, unlike the previously disclosed 145.5 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were obtained. Attackers were unable to get the state where the licenses were issued, the date of issuance or expiration dates, Equifax said.”
