Keller Rohrback Investigates First American Financial Data Breach
Keller Rohrback is investigating reports that real estate title insurance behemoth First American Financial Corporation (“First American”) leaked hundreds of millions of documents related to mortgage deals dating back to 2003. These documents included bank account numbers and statements, mortgage and tax records, Social Security numbers, wire transaction receipts, and images of drivers’ licenses—documents that all consumers wish to remain private.
First American’s data breach reportedly allowed for anyone with access to a web browser to view at least 885 million private documents without authentication. According to reports, with the change of a single digit to a known document’s URL, anyone could locate and view other consumers’ private information.
While First American reportedly has shut off external access to its application, this massive data breach could leave consumers extremely vulnerable. The information potentially exposed would be a jackpot for phishers and scammers involved in Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams in which real estate agents and title and escrow firms are impersonated, tricking property buyers into wiring funds to scammers. These scams are the costliest type of cybercrime today according to the FBI.
