Poll Description

As Mainebiz reported first, 74,000 of the state's residents may have had personal data stolen in a cyberattack against mortgage lender LoanDepot. Nationwide, the attack has threatened nearly 17 million people.

The FBI has warned that the ransomware gang allegedly behind the attack already compromised data of over 1,000 businesses and government entities and received nearly $300 million in extorted payments.

Last April, an unrelated ransomware attack against Harvard Pilgrim Health Care jeopardized the personal information of its 1.1 million insurance plan members, including roughly 75,000 Mainers.

For consumers who have been affected by the data breaches, LoanDepot, Harvard Pilgrim and other businesses have offered free credit monitoring and identity protection services.
