Prudential Breach Affected 2.5 Million

Number of affected victims was originally estimated to be 36,000.

Around 2.5 million people may have been affected by a February 2024 incident, despite an original report that it was only 36,545.

According to reports, the initial filing to the Attorney General’s Office in Maine by  Prudential listed the number of affected persons as 36,545, but revised a breach notice now states that over 2.5 million individuals had their data stolen.

According to Prudential, attackers were able to access individuals’ names and other personal identifiers, as well as their driver’s license numbers and other non-driver ID card numbers.

Prudential said in a statement that it has “worked diligently to complete a complex analysis of the affected data and notify individuals” and its notifications are substantially complete at this time.
