A billing contractor, the Seattle-based Automatic Funds Transfer Services, was hit by a ransomware attack in early February. The DMV has worked with the organization since mid-2019 “to correct and verify vehicle registration addresses,” according to the department.
KFSN in Fresno reports that the affected data includes 20 months’ worth of California vehicle registration records — including names, addresses, license plate numbers and vehicle identification numbers (VINs) — dating back to at least August 2019.
