Seen on Landline: A problem with the Unified Carrier Registration plans website may hold exposed social security or assess ID numbers for thousands of users. UCR indicated that the vulnerability existed between march 1st and march 28th, 2019. The information exposed includes 23,000 Social surety numbers. After a bit of searching, I found the actual notice from UCR, which i am embedding below. The undated notice has a metadata creation data of October 21. It notes that once UCR became aware of the problem on march 28, they eliminated the vulnerability by removing the utilise of assess id numbers in the national Registration System. Their investigation also found that there was no indication of any mass exfiltration of data during the vulnerable period in March. The The photograph was limited to the exposure of a tax id number in the status bar of the web browser of the registration receipt. There is no explanation of why there is such a long postponement from march to october 21 to issue the notification disclosure, but UCR did report the incident to the Federal motor newsboy safety organization (FMCSA), who then asked them to ladder the 30,000 entries during the vulnerable time point through FMCSAs MCMIS database to determine the number of registrants who may have provided a social surety number to the database as the tax ID number. That analysis revealed that 23,000 individuals did employment their SSN as their tax id. Those individuals have recently been sent notification letters offer them identity monitoring services.
