The hacker was able to access the Social Security numbers of about 140,000 customers — those who used their Social Security number as their employer identification number in applying for small business credit cards, the bank said.

"The FBI has arrested the person responsible. Based on our analysis to date, we believe it is unlikely that the information was used for fraud or disseminated by this individual. However, we will continue to investigate.

Based on our analysis to date, this event affected approximately 100 million individuals in the United States and approximately 6 million in Canada.

Importantly, no credit card account numbers or log-in credentials were compromised and over 99 percent of Social Security numbers were not compromised."



"No bank account numbers or Social Security numbers were compromised, other than:

About 140,000 Social Security numbers of our credit card customers

About 80,000 linked bank account numbers of our secured credit card customers"

Seems like Capital One has alot of info from this hacker! If I'm one of the 140k victims with stolen SSN, shouldn't I be informed?

The lawsuit against the hacker is quite an interesting read.

To pull off a hack like this you need to be quite brilliant, though based on how she is described, she’s emotionally unstable or simply “erratic”.
