TOPEKA, Kan. - America’s JobLink, a multi-state web-based system that links job seekers with employers has been the victim of a hack.
The hack affects job seekers who used the service in Kansas as well as Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Oklahoma, and Vermont. The firm says by using an exploit, hackers were able to view the names, birth dates and Social Security numbers of those who have used the service.
The exploit was discovered Tuesday and has since been fixed. The firm is working with law enforcement to try to identify the suspect or suspects.
An independent forensic firm is working to identify those whose personal data was compromised by the hack.
