Personal data in ISP website may have been compromised

Instead of my permit, which was approved six days ago, I got a letter from Illinois State Police, telling me I may need to monitor my credit reports for the next year.

They discovered a breach in their security and there had been unauthorized access to some applicant data. Anyone who applied prior to 3 AM on 1/5/2014, may have been compromised.

Todd Vandermyde looked into this many weeks ago, the ISP is just now getting around to sending out notices. The ISP claims that only uploaded files such as fingerprints, pictures and training certificates were viewable. The ISP also claims that only 2 files were compromised. The problem was solved the day after the vulnerability was brought to their attention by an honest citizen. FWIW.


Watch your credit reports!

I did a little writeup about it and shared a copy of the letter. Special thanks to Handye for sharing the letter with me. Link Removed
