U.S. state attorneys general reportedly have launched a multistate investigation into a breach in which crooks allegedly gained access to some 200 million Social Security numbers via a unit of credit bureau Experian PLC.
Among the states conducting the investigation include Illinois and Connecticut, according to Reuters.
“We are investigating," Maura Possley, a spokeswoman for Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, said in the Reuters report. "It's part of a multistate investigation.”
Experian declined to comment, Reuters said.
