Hackers Steal Information about Home Hunters from Housing Agency

Hackers have stolen hundreds and possibly thousands of identity card scans after breaking into the computer system of a rental housing company.  The information stolen was uploaded between 2017 and 2019 by people seeking a place to live.  The hackers possess the name, address, contact information and copies of passports or id cards which include a personal identification number (BSN).  This allows hackers to open bank accounts or take out loans by using other peoples’ identity.
