FBI and Texas Attorney General's Office investigate data breach affecting 27 million Texas drivers
The FBI and the Texas Attorney General's Office are investigating a data breach after the state of Texas sold personal information for profit.
The insurance company Vertafore legally bought driver's license records from the state. The company later said those records were accidentally posted online, according to Dave Lieber, a watchdog columnist for the Dallas Morning News.
"The vehicle identification number, the type of car, color body, [what] make it is... whoever it is they owe the money [to], drivers license number, address, name...," said Lieber. "The only thing they didn't really get is our social security."
Lieber said the much of the damage is already done and likely to happen again, as the state continues selling information.
