Insurance company Geico recently filed a data breach notice with the attorney general of California. According to the disclosure, the breach occurred between January 21, 2021 and March 1, 2021 and exposed customers’ driver license numbers.
However, Geico did not disclose how many customers might have been affected nor whether the breach was limited to California. Driver license numbers can be used to file fraudulent unemployment claims.
The Geico Data Breach notice reads in part “We recently determined that between January 21, 2021 and March 1, 2021, fraudsters used information about you – which they acquired elsewhere – to obtain unauthorized access to your driver’s license number through the online sales system on our website.”
