E-Trade notifies 31,000 customers that their contact info may have been breached in 2013 hack

Andrea Peterson reports that E-Trade is first notifying 31,000 customers of a breach it discovered in 2013. The breach was first disclosed in 2014, but at that time, E-Trade reportedly didn’t believe that customer information had been involved.

The hackers may have accessed customers’ e-mail names, as well as e-mail and physical addresses, according to a notification E-Trade sent to customers affected by the incident. But there is “no evidence that any sensitive customer account information, including passwords, Social Security numbers, or financial information was compromised,” the e-mail said. There were “no reports of financial fraud or loss resulting from this incident.”

This incident is also likely related to the recently disclosed Scottrade breach and Dow Jones breach.
