Security breach at Robinhood: A hack exposed the personal information of at least SEVEN MILLION customers, including email addresses and full names.
At least seven million Robinhood users’ data, including email addresses and full names, were exposed as a result of a hack.
The security breach occurred on November 3rd, according to the financial services company.
“An unauthorized third party obtained limited access to personal information for a portion of our customers,” Robinhood said.
The attack on Robinhood was contained, and no “social security numbers, bank account numbers, or debit card numbers” were exposed, according to the company.
The company also stated that no customers suffered financial losses as a result of the incident.
“At this time, we believe the unauthorized party obtained a list of approximately five million people’s email addresses, as well as the full names of another group of approximately two million people.”
“We also believe that additional personal information, such as name, date of birth, and zip code, was exposed for a smaller number of people—approximately 310 in total—with a subset of approximately 10 customers having more extensive account details revealed,” Robinhood added.
