100 million Capital One customers were hacked — everything you need to know about data breaches, but were afraid to ask

Capital One Financial Corp. announced late Monday that more than 100 million people had their personal information hacked.

The hacker got information including credit scores and balances, ZIP codes, email addresses, dates of birth, self-reported income and payments history, fragments of transaction data, plus the Social Security numbers of about 140,000 customers and 80,000 bank-account numbers from credit-card customers, the bank said. It will offer free credit-monitoring services to those affected. Consumers and small businesses who applied for Capital One credit cards from 2005 through early 2019 are most at risk.

Capital One couldn’t say for sure whether the leaked data was used for fraud.
