Hackers breached Washington state court with Adobe ColdFusion flaw

Quote:
Hackers used a flaw in Adobe's ColdFusion software to breach Washington state's Administrative Office of the Courts.

The hackers may have accessed as many as 160,000 Social Security numbers and up to one million drivers license numbers, according to a statement by the court on Thursday.

The court has only confirmed that 94 Social Security numbers were definitely taken, however, and believes the breach occurred sometime between last autumn and February this year, according to Associated Press. It also confirmed the breach happened due to a flaw in Adobe's web application platform, ColdFusion.

Just goes to show, you can think you have all your routes covered, but you still are not fully protected. Doesn't make me feel too safe knowing that my government has my life on a file and could be hacked then my identity stolen. It's almost a keep your fingers type of era when it comes to pc storage and safety with third party or other companies/governments/business and your personal info. I try to keep my personal info and important things like SS, bank number etc. in my own hands, but lets face it the gov has your information already so it's roulette with their safety and your info.
