Quake what was the issue with Lexis Nexis?
NEW YORK/AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Data broker LexisNexis said Tuesday that personal information may have been stolen on 310,000 U.S. citizens, or nearly 10 times the number found in a data breach announced last month.
An investigation by the firm's Anglo-Dutch parent Reed Elsevier determined that its databases had been fraudulently breached 59 times using stolen passwords, leading to the possible theft of personal information such as addresses and Social Security numbers.
LexisNexis, which said in March that 32,000 people had been potentially affected by the breaches, will notify an additional 278,000 individuals whose data may have been stolen.
Just out of curiousity, I tried the Zabasearch.com website and searched for myself. It didn't show my two addresses over the past 4 years, but it did show my address from over 4 years ago. So, I guess I'm not to concerned... yet.
