Chegg, a California-based education technology company with over three million subscribers, has reported a data breach. Hackers stole details of 700 current and former employees, including their names and Social Security numbers.
This is Chegg's third security incident in the last three years. In 2018, the company suffered a major data breach that resulted in the loss of 40 million customer records including names, email addresses, shipping addresses, usernames and passwords. In 2019, Chegg confirmed another data breach. To investigate the breach and implement stronger security measures, Chegg hired a third-party forensic firm and notified law enforcement authorities of the breach.
