Court system hacked in Wash. state

OLYMPIA, Wash. — The Washington state Administrative Office of the Courts was hacked sometime between last fall and February, and up to 160,000 Social Security numbers and 1 million driver’s license numbers may have been accessed during the data breach of its public website, officials said Thursday.

Court officials said they have only confirmed that 94 Social Security numbers were obtained and they do not think the larger number was compromised, but they wanted to alert the public to the possibility as a precaution.
