Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
California DMV data BREACH exposed THOUSANDS of drivers' information, agency says
A data breach at the California Department of Motor Vehicles may have exposed some drivers' Social Security number information to seven government ENTITIES, according to the DMV. The breach affects about 3,200 individuals over at least the last four years, the agency said in a statement. The DMV insists it was not hacked and information was not shared with private individuals or entities.
Gee. Seems like an inside search to me.
The information was improperly disclosed through the Government Requester Code Account Program, which allows government agencies to access information on file with the DMV and is "permitted only for limited purposes under state and federal law."
18 USC § 2721 (b) permits 14 different types of "disclosure", 11 without "consent" of the individual "to whom the information pertains". Then there's Real ID ahh disclosure purposes.
The DMV said it has "implemented several additional layers of review" for any new requester that seeks to access any social security information.
o. look. California is compliant with the REAL ID Act.
