Capital One data breach exposes tens of thousands of Social Security numbers, linked bank accounts

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/30/capital-one-breach-customer-records-social-security-numbers.html

 The Virginia-headquartered bank said in a news release that about 140,000 Social Security numbers of its credit card customers and around 80,000 linked bank account numbers were compromised. In total, Capital One said, "this event affected approximately 100 million individuals in the United States and approximately 6 million in Canada."

Still, no credit card account numbers or log-in credentials were exposed and over 99% of Social Security numbers were not affected, according to the bank, which said the unauthorized access occurred on March 22 and 23 of this year
