December: Nationwide Mutual hacked, 1.1 million Americans affected
And last but not least, insurance giant Nationwide Mutual suffered a hack that affected 1.1 million Americans, according to North Carolina Attorney General. It's thought that the hackers may have been from overseas, and may not have been on U.S. soil.
Customers' names, Social Security numbers, and driver's license details were all pilfered by the hackers, and the possibility of date of birth and marital status, gender and their employers name could not be ruled out. The extent of the hack may not be realized until the early part of 2013. The insurance company prepared a statement and said it was "very sorry," but was not aware of "any misuse of customers' information."
