Capital One went on to say that roughly 140,000 U.S. Social Security numbers, 80,000 bank account numbers and 1 million Canadian social insurance numbers were stolen by the hackers.(wow that a lot of valuable info right there😰)
It doesn’t end there, the hackers was also said to have stolen home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and even birthdays. (All that personal info together with the stolen account numbers could be really dangerous…)💰
Although one 33-year-old Paige A Thompson who also goes by the nickname (erratic) has been arrested by the Justice Department and alleging that she was the one behind the attack. (Wait a sec did you just hear that….it a she)
The report also says that Paige had been accessing the server since 12 March to 17 of July. The hacker also posted details about the hack on a Github page in April.👑
The Github page contained the hacker’s full name and her resume, and as a matter of fact she was a systems engineer and has worked for Amazon web services. But Amazon in their defense said that the hacker left the company three years before carrying out the attack.
