TWIC Personal Data Compromised

There is a report today on CyberWarNews that there was an attack on a TWIC web site ( operated by Lockheed Martin Corporation that compromised a database and may have resulted in a release of personal information of TWIC applicants. According to data provided by OZ Data Centa on the reported data dump was 9.82 KB so it isn’t a really large data compromise, but the information may be useful for more than just the normal identity theft; it may compromise TWICs.

As I noted on a comment posted to Homeland Security Today group on LinkedIn, it will be interesting to see how long it takes TSA to notify TWIC holders of the potential personal information data compromise.
