U-Haul discloses data breach exposing customer driver licenses

Moving and storage giant U-Haul International (U-Haul) disclosed a data breach after a customer contract search tool was hacked to access customers' names and driver's license information.

Following an incident investigation started on July 12 after discovering the breach, the company found on August 1 that attackers accessed some customers' rental contracts between November 5, 2021, and April 5, 2022.

"After an in-depth analysis, our investigation determined on September 7, 2022, the accessed information includes your name and driver's license or state identification number," U-Haul told affected customers in notification letters sent to impacted individuals on Friday.

While it didn't explain how the credentials were compromised, the company changed them after the breach was detected to block additional malicious activity.

U-Haul says it provides affected customers one year of free identity theft protection services through Equifax to help them detect when or if their personal information is misused.
