    From SC Magazine:

    Tax software maker TaxAct is informing some of its customers that an unauthorized third party accessed their TaxAct account in late 2015.

    According to the letter dated January 11, TaxAct found evidence that certain accounts were entered between Nov. 10, 2015 and Dec. 4, 2015. The attacker viewed and possibly copied or printed stored tax returns and thus had access to Social Security numbers, addressed, names, driver's license numbers and bank account information.
