Unemployment Records Hacked in 10 States

unemployed

Unemployment alerted me today that they had been hacked. The records contain your name, Social Security and birth date. But, it doesn’t seem that any of the information has been used.

How comforting.

On March 21st, AJLA–TS confirmed that a malicious third party “hacker” exploited a vulnerability in the AJL application code to view the names, Social Security Numbers, and dates of birth of job seekers in the AJL systems of up to ten states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Oklahoma, and Vermont.

How many years has it been since I’ve been on unemployment anyway?

So, the bankrupt State of Illinois will provide a year subscription to Credit Watch.

The State of Maine is recommending that people freeze their credit.

I guess every state is handling this differently. You’ll have to check with your state for details.

Now my question is, why hack a database of broke people? There has to be another intent.
