A massive cyberattack has exposed personal details of every single driver’s license issued in Louisiana. The attack also affected multiple federal agencies, British Airways, and BBC. The hackers stole the information by exploiting a third-party software provider used by all of the victims — which one did they hack?

The governor of Louisiana said that everyone with a driver’s license, ID card, or car registration issued by the state likely had their names, address, and SSN exposed. A Russia-linked gang called CI0p claimed credit for the attack, and they hacked a flaw in MOVEit’s file transfer tool. The other entities also used MOVEit, or used another entity that used it.

There were 27,759 fans in attendance, the largest home crowd the A’s have had all season, and triple their average.
