Notable data breaches
RSA SecurID devices breached
Date: June 2011
The RSA Security division of Hopkintons EMC Corp., was recently the target of a data breach that may have compromised some of the 40 million SecurID devices that the company has sold. The device works by entering two passwords – one memorized by the user and another randomly generated on the screen.
The company did not release information on what exactly was stolen, but the company offered to replace the SecurID tokens.
