The Washington State Auditor’s Office said a data breach compromised the personal information of 1.4 million residents who filed for unemployment last year.
The breach also may have exposed information from some state agencies and local governments.
State Auditor Pat McCarthy said the breach may have affected people who filed for unemployment between Jan. 1 to Dec. 10, 2020.
The compromised data includes names, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, bank information and place of employment. It also includes data held by the Department of Children, Youth and Families.
