Block (formerly Square) notifies 8.2 million users of a data breach after it emerged that a former Cash App employee accessed customer information last year after being fired.The leak became known from documents filed by Block with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, as required by law. It is reported that the violation occurred as early as December 10, 2021 after a former employee uploaded Cash App internal reports after the dismissal.
The leaked documents contained the full names of Cash App customers, as well as their brokerage account numbers associated with investing in Cash App. Additional information was also provided for some clients, including portfolio value, holdings, and trading activity for one trading day.
Let me remind you that we also said that Red Cross asks hackers not to “leak” personal data of 515,000 people online, and also that 38 Million User Records Leaked Due to Misconfiguration of Microsoft Power Apps.
