The Illinois Department of Employment Security has revealed that somewhere between 1.2 million and 1.4 million Illinois residents who have received unemployment benefits from the State of Illinois have had their names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers compromised through a hacking of its vendor’s database. The residents are those seeking jobs and using the State’s vendor—America’s Job Link-Technical Support. Illinois is in the process of notifying affected individuals.

Although Illinois has publicly reported the incident, authorities have confirmed that individuals from up to 10 states were affected by the hacking incident, including Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Oklahoma, and Vermont.
