Another multi-million user data breach

“Scottrade Data Breach May Affect Millions of Users,” The Wall Street Journal, October 3-4, 2015 B12. The names and addresses of 4.6 million clients hacked, beginning in late 2013.  Scottrade notified by the Feds in late August, but was asked to keep quiet until now.

That’s better than J.P. Morgan Chase, which had a breach affecting as many as 76 million households.
