Korea Credit Bureau
In January, it was revealed that 27 million records were stolen from the Korea Credit Bureau, including names, resident registration numbers and credit card details for 40 percent of the population of South Korea. A computer contractor working for the Korea Credit Bureau, which is responsible for producing credit scores, was to blame as he abused access to secretly copy the data onto an external drive over the course of a year and a half. While the contractor was identified and arrested, along with 15 others who played a role in distributing this information, the investigation has not been concluded because authorities are still attempting to identify how the compromised records were being distributed.
