IT World Canada reports a hacker accessed the financial information of 37,000 customers of TransUnion Canada. An individual was able to access the data via a stolen access code that belonged to leasing firm CWB National Leasing. Bleeping Computer reports TransUnion Canada notified affected individuals after the breach was discovered. “TransUnion Canada learned in August that some consumer credit files in Canada may have been accessed without authorization through the fraudulent use of a legitimate customer’s login credentials,” TransUnion Canada Senior Vice President of Public Relations David Blumberg said in an emailed statement. “TransUnion continues to look for ways to further strengthen our defenses against unauthorized access of any kind to TransUnion data.”
