Submission + - Nationwide, Allied Insurance Data Breach Hits 1.1M Victims (threatpost.com)

Trailrunner7 writes: An estimated 1.1 million consumers are at risk of identity theft after thieves broke into servers belonging to Nationwide and Allied insurance companies. Victims include current policyholders and those who sought insurance quotes.

The breach took place Oct. 3 and was discovered the same day. Nationwide immediately contacted authorities, but it waited to inform consumers directly. Earlier news accounts offered some hints at the scope of the breach, including some 30,000 victims in Florida and Ohio and 90,000 in Iowa.
