cyber attack on its systems. The cyber crime bad actor gained unauthorized access to the personal
information of approximately 98 million U.S. consumers.
The information that have been
hacked included a combination of people's names, addresses, zip codes/postal codes,
phone numbers, email addresses, dates of birth, self-reported income, credit
scores, credit limits, balances, payment history, contact data, and/or fragments
of transaction data from a total of 23 days during 2016, 2017 and 2018.
The Capital One data breach also resulted in about 120,000 Social Security numbers and 80,000 linked bank account
numbers being accessed by attackers. This data is deemed extremely sensitive as it is sensitive and personally identifiable information.
