In almost every breach attackers are after two things, Data & Credentials!
Why? Because data is what attackers can monetize and credentials are what give them access to the data. So it’s no surprise when we see a tale like that of Banker’s Life come across our desk.
In a statement released late last week, Bankers Life said that “unauthorized third parties” gained access to a limited number of Bankers Life employees’ credentials between May 30 and Sept. 13. During this period, the company said, “…unauthorized third parties used improperly obtained employee information to gain access to certain company websites, potentially resulting in unauthorized access to personal information of policyholders and applicants.”
In addition to the group whose data was accessed, Bankers Life said, a larger group of its customers may have had their information exposed; including names, addresses, birth dates, the last four digits of Social Security numbers and insurance information such as policy numbers, types of insurance, premiums, dates of service and claims amounts.
Unfortunately, this may have led to over half a million people having their PII compromised.
