About 100,000 people photos & license plate images of the cars they traveled in compromised from a data breach at a third-party subcontractor


Hackers Hit US Customs to Steal Travelers’ Photos, License Images — Fewer than 100,000 people had photos of themselves exposed in the breach. The hackers struck by targeting a third-party subcontractor that was supplying license plate reader technology to US Customs and Border Protection. However, no passport details, travel documents or facial recognition images taken at airports were compromised in the hack. And aside from the license plates, the exposed photos in the breach included no other identifying information.
