TD Bank: Data loss affects about 260,000 U.S. customers

Jessica Hall continues to update the TD Bank backup tapes breach:

In Maine, 34,907 residents were affected, according to a letter sent to the attorney general from TD Bank.

As I tweeted earlier today, TD Bank made a bad decision, in my opinion, not to release the total number all at once in their original statement.
