Hackers Stole Traveler Photos From U.S. Customs

According to a recent report in the Washington Post, license plate images and photos of individuals who traveled in and out of the United States were taken in a malicious hack impacting U.S. Customs and Border Protection .

Gizmodo reports that the agency learned last month about the breach, which took place thanks to a hack of an unnamed subcontractor.

The exact nature of the stolen data, its connection to the face recognition system, and the scale of the breach remains unclear.
