U-Haul is best known as a moving and storage company people have relied on since 1945. They provide moving solutions as well as self-storage options to people nationwide.
U-Haul International recently discovered a breach of its contract systems. While they have assured everyone that hackers stole no credit or debit card information, they may have accessed the driver's license numbers of over two million customers.
Sometime in July of 2022, U-Haul International was alerted to the compromisation of two of their passwords. As a result, an unknown and unidentified party gained access to the contract information of over two million U-Haul customers.
The breach occurred sometime between November 5th, 2021, and April 5th, 2022.
U-Haul has been working tirelessly to identify and notify the affected parties. They have been in the process of alerting any affected U-Haul users since September 9th, 2022. The affected consumers will only be those who signed a contract with the company between November 5th, 2021, and April 5th, 2022.
"After an in-depth analysis, our investigation determined on September 7th, 2022, the accessed information includes your name and driver's license or state identification number," U-Haul told affected customers.
While the credit or debit card information of the individuals was not on the hacked database, the hacker still had access to personally identifying information. This means that the affected individuals can still have things like credit cards opened, cars bought, houses rented, etc., all under their name. Identity theft is a real threat that customers are now facing. Read more about the U-Haul breach here U-Haul Breach Leaves Customers Struggling.
