Console & Associates, P.C.: Maximus Reports MOVEit Data Breach Exposing Between 8 and 11 Million Social Security Numbers

MARLTON, N.J, July 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Between 8 to 11 million consumers are being notified that their Social Security numbers, protected health information and other personally identifiable information were compromised when hackers accessed a MOVEit server belonging to Maximus, Inc. The data breach lawyers at Console & Associates, P.C. are investigating claims on behalf of anyone affected by the Maximus breach, hoping to fully inform them of the risks they face in the wake of the breach as well as their legal rights.

The sensitive personal data of 8 to 11 million consumers has been compromised. Now, their full names, Social Security numbers, protected health information, and other confidential information may be in the hands of criminals, putting them at a greater risk of identity theft and other frauds.

On July 26, 2023, Maximus, Inc. filed an 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission describing a data breach affecting consumers nationwide. Maximus explained that the incident affected individuals who participated in various government programs. According to the notice, the data breach affected between 8 and 11 million people.

Maximus notes that the incident stemmed from a vulnerability in the MOVEit file-sharing application. Evidently, on May 31, 2023, the creator of MOVEit announced that the software suffered from a critical vulnerability allowing unauthorized actors to access MOVEit servers, including one belonging to Maximus.

The list of information that was exposed includes:

  • Full names,
  • Social Security numbers,
  • Protected health information (“PHI”), and
  • Other personally identifiable information.

If you receive a data breach notice from Maximus, you could now be at risk of identity theft—and the devastating financial and legal consequences that go along with it.
