The office of personnel management (opm ), affiliated with the us government, announced on wednesday that the fingerprints of 5.6 million employees were Israel Phone Number List stolen by hackers who broke into their registry systems. This figure is about 5.5 times what is stated in official sources. As a result of the cyber attack that emerged earlier this year, the Israel Phone Number List social security numbers and important information of 21.5 million people were seized. Opm learned of this new data theft after an investigation by the department of defense and intelligence agencies. Opm spokesman samuel schumach says the department of defense is collaborating with them to improve the security of opm's databases and systems. Opm offers free identity theft and fraud detection services to us workers and their children. However, Many victims of this theft will not find out if their records were stolen and how to register with the troubleshooting services until the ongoing Israel Phone Number List reporting process is completed in november. Federal officials say fingerprint data is of little use to cyber thieves. “as far as we have learned from the authorities so far, this data is unlikely to be misused,” schumach told the e-commerce times. However, the same officials also say that this possibility may increase with the development of technology,” he said. Cyber attack information security experts say that stolen fingerprints can be used for accessing profiles and identity theft, hackers can create different user identities using this stolen information, and access users' geographic data and account information. Ryan wilk, director of customer service at nudata security, states that these stolen Israel Phone Number List fingerprints endanger victims in all areas where biometrics is used, especially with the increasing use of touch/fingerprint-based authentication in mobile banking and payment transactions. In addition, it is stated that although hackers cannot do much with these stolen fingerprints, Foreign governments can access secret areas and information with these fingerprints, causing serious damage, and even transferring them to a Israel Phone Number List leather-like material, spies can seize top secret information. Similarly, fingerprint data can be used for biometric access to smartphones, tablets and laptops. There are concerns that this data could be used by foreign intelligence services. While identity theft protection services may be beneficial to victims of opm data theft, it is not yet clear how much benefit this service will offer. It is claimed that the government will provide this service for a relatively short period of time, and that identity information cIsrael Phone Number List an be used after this period. At the point where this service is insufficient, it is emphasized that it is important to create an extra layer of security with user behavior analysis. 0 comments0 related articles
