If you have had your personal information impacted by the Astoria data breach, contact a data privacy attorney to investigate your claim. You may be able to file a class action data breach lawsuit to compensate you for your time, financial losses, and future risk of identity theft.
Astoria Company, which operates a lead exchange, connecting consumers with the products and services (auto loans, mortgages and other financial services) has announced that up to 940,000 individuals may have been affected by a data breach incident earlier this year.
According to Astoria’s investigation, in late January 2021, an individual gained unauthorized access to the Astoria network which contained a database of individuals’ personal information.
In February, Astoria learned of the hack and although the company may have prevented further intrusion, a trove of personal data may have already been leaked. Astoria was eventually able to obtain a copy of the stolen data, and is now alerting individuals that the following information may have been leaked:
- Mailing address
- Email address
- Phone number
- Date of birth
- Social security number
- Driver’s license number
- Employment information
