Techworld reports on a television show's data breach resulting in the loss of 250,000 individuals' personal information. Hackers illegally accessed a database containing information about individuals auditioning for Fox Broadcasting's "The X Factor." The lost information includes names, addresses, phone numbers and dates of birth. Those affected have been notified by e-mail and the FBI has been informed. "The worry now is that criminals will use the data to mask social engineering or identity attacks," the report states.
