Washington State Office Of The Courts Was Hacked

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington state Administrative Office of the Courts was hacked in February, and up to 160,000 social security numbers and 1 million driver license numbers may have been accessed during the data breach of its public website.
    
Officials with the courts announced Thursday that so far, it has been confirmed that 94 social security numbers were obtained.
    
Initially, it was not believed that confidential information was obtained, but following an investigation by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, the broader breach was confirmed in April.
    
Courts spokeswoman Wendy Ferrell said that those potentially affected come from a defined group, including those who were booked into a city or county jail between September 2011 through December 2012, and those who received DUI citations or had traffic cases or superior court criminal cases during a specific period of time.
