Hackers reveal 140,000 customers id's

Date: December 02, 2005

An Internet hacker might have gained access to personal and financial data of about 140,000 customers of Scottrade Inc., a stock brokerage based in St. Louis County.

Scottrade said Tuesday that the breach involved the company's eCheck Secure service, which allowed customers to electronically shift funds to their Scottrade accounts from their banks.

Possible exposed information included names, birth dates, drivers license numbers, phone numbers, bank names, bank routing numbers, bank account numbers and Scottrade account numbers.

The eCheck service was provided by Scottrade through a third party, Troy Group Inc. of Santa Ana, Calif. Troy, which offers eCheck to several financial-services companies, publicly reported the breach on Oct. 25 and notified Scottrade the same day.
