Every Louisiana driver’s license holder exposed in colossal cyber-attack

The Guardian

Personal details for every holder of a driver’s license from the US state of Louisiana were exposed to hackers who have pulled off a colossal cyber-attack that also affected American federal agencies, British Airways and the BBC, according to officials.

A statement on Thursday from the governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, said that his staff believes everyone with a driver’s license, identification card or car registration issued by the state of more than 4.6 million residents probably had their names, addresses and social security numbers exposed to the hackers.

Other personal information to which the cyber-attackers apparently had access were Louisianans’ driver’s license numbers, vehicle registration data, handicap placard information, birthdates, heights and eye colors, Edwards’s statement said.
