First American Title

This week, home mortgage company First American Title experienced a security breach, according to Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security. Due to a design flaw in their online interface, hackers could easily have access to all 880 million customer files.  The website has been shut down, but nobody knows just how much data was stolen if any. Leo says that anyone who has had a title with First American should have a fraud alert placed on their credit file, just in case. In fact, EVERYONE should.
