What to know about the Oregon DMV Data Breach
In June, approximately 3.5 million Oregonians had their personal information breached from the Oregon DMV. If you have an active Oregon driver’s license, permit, or ID card, you should assume your personal information was exposed.
Any information typically associated with the DMV was likely involved, and therefor exposed to the hackers. This includes:
- Home/Mailing Address
- License/ID Number
- Last four digits of Social Security Number, but not your full Social Security Number.
Breached information did NOT include your banking, credit card or other financial information. The cyberattack did not impact the Credit Union. Your data is secure at PFCU.
Rest assured that we are taking extra precautions with your information. This may include us asking extra questions to further ensure your identity when assisting your financial needs.
