The governor's office says about 1.4 million Illinois job seekers are affected after one of the state's employment security agency vendors was hacked.
Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner's office said Friday afternoon that the Illinois Department of Employment Security notified the Illinois General Assembly about the hack.
State officials say the hacker may have accessed the names, Social Security numbers and birthdates of job seekers in the vendor's database.
Authorities say the data break may have affected ten states.
