Last week, Denmark’s national police revealed that, in the summer of 2012, hackers might have stolen and modified information from the police driving license register, including the personal identity number register (CPR).
Politiken.dk reports that the hackers retrieved CPR information, and details of individuals wanted by authorities in the Schengen area. In addition, between April and August 2012, hackers may have accessed data from the Modernization Agency and the Tax Authority.
