Personal data of 92,095 credit applicants exposed in a security breach
A computer server within InterActive Financial Marketing Group (IFMG), a division of Dominion Enterprises located in Richmond, Virginia, was hacked into and illegally accessed by an unknown and unauthorized third party between November 2007 and February 2008.
The data intrusion resulted in the potential exposure of personal information, including the names, addresses, birth dates, and social security numbers of 92,095 applicants who submitted credit applications to IFMG’s family of special finance Web sites.
Dominion Enterprises President and CEO Conrad M. Hall commented:
We deeply regret this incident and apologize for the concern and inconvenience it has caused. We are committed to helping those who were affected and strongly encourage them to sign up for the complimentary credit monitoring and to take the action steps outlined in our letter.
