Capital One Data Breach Suspect Might Have Hacked 30 Companies

Capital One Data Breach Affects 100 Million Customers

Prosecutors say the woman charged with breaching more than 100-million Capital One credit applications might have hacked more than two-dozen other companies. FBI agents arrested Paige Thompson last month, and she's due in Seattle federal court for a hearing today. The U.S. Attorney's office says servers in her bedroom contained data stolen from more than 30 companies, schools, and other organizations. Investigators are working to identify whose data was on those servers. There's no evidence the data hacked from Capital One was sold or distributed.
