LoanDepot reports massive data breach, leaving 16.6 million customers’ sensitive personal details compromised in cyber assault.

Loandepot Cyber Incident Breach Ransomware
About 16.6 million LoanDepot customers had their “sensitive personal” information” stolen in a cyberattack earlier this month, which the loan and mortgage giant has described as ransomware. The loan company said in a filing with federal regulators on Monday that it would notify the affected customers of the data breach. LoanDepot did not say what kind of sensitive and personal customer data was stolen. When reached by email, LoanDepot spokesperson Jonathan Fine declined to tell TechCrunch what specific types of customer data was taken. LoanDepot said it has “not yet determined” whether the cybersecurity incident will materially impact the company’s financial condition.
