Hackers Steal High-Profile Client Data from Limo Service
More than 850,000 customers' names, addresses, credit card numbers and expiration dates were exposed, including those of Tom Hanks and LeBron James.
Krebs on Security's Brian Krebs reports that hackers recently stole personal and financial data on more than 850,000 customers of St. Louis-based limo company CorporateCarOnline, including celebrities, politicians and CEOs.
The plain text archive, including names, addresses, credit card numbers and expiration dates, was found on the same servers where information stolen from PR Newswire and Adobe Systems was recently uncovered, indicating that the same hackers may have been involved.
Customers whose data was exposed include LeBron James, Tom Hanks, Donald Trump, Lego CEO Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, Rep. John Conyers, and Sen. Tom Daschle.
Notably, the archive also includes customers' travel dates and locations, along with the tail numbers of many customers' planes.
According to Hold Security, the breach likely occurred on or before September 10, 2013, and leveraged a ColdFusion exploit.
