The Idaho Transportation Department reports that personal information of hundreds of commercial drivers may have been compromised during a recent hack of the transportion department’s email accounts.
The cyber attack happened in mid-December and exposed an estimated 318 driver’s license numbers, 400 Social Security numbers or employee ID numbers, 999 credit card numbers, and 11 bank account numbers from licensed commercial drivers.
According to KPVI News, State Information Security Director Jeff Weak says that the Idaho Transportation Department Division of Motor Vehicles has already notified the 140 individuals and companies most at-risk from the hack, but that the ITD is still in the process of investigating the incident and determining exactly how much information has been compromised.
“We are working closely with the ITD team and the Department of Administration to determine whether any personal data was actually breached,” said Weak.
“In the meantime, the ITD is taking additional measures to harden our cybersecurity defenses against another attack and ensure that the personal information of citizens is protected.”
