Personal Identification Information (PII) Exposed!
Yes, that is what has been recently reported about the Active Network’s Blue Bear Software. They say, earlier this year, illicit activity in its network left customer PII vulnerable.
Active Network informed about the issue to the California Attorney General’s office and explained that the company recently learned that between October 1, 2019, and November 13, 2019, there was an unauthorized activity that took place on its Blue Bear platform and this was the period when personal information was accessed and obtained by threat actors.

Additionally, the exposed information that might have been accessed includes name, security code, payment card expiration date, and usernames and passwords associated with Blue Bear accounts. However, driver license numbers, Social Security numbers, or similar government ID proofs were untouched.
The company said, “As soon as we identified the suspicious activity, our counsel engaged a leading cybersecurity firm to investigate the incident and took steps to enhance its monitoring tools and security controls. We are also offering you free identity monitoring services.”
