Wind River Systems, which develops embedded system software, on Friday warned of a “security incident” that had exposed personnel records.
One or more files were downloaded from the company’s network on or around September 29, it said. Affected data included information maintained within the company’s personnel records – including critical data like Social-Security numbers, driver’s license numbers and passport numbers.
“We have been working with law enforcement and outside experts to investigate a security incident that occurred toward the end of September,” according to the security-incident notice, filed with California’s Attorney General as part of the state’s data-breach notification requirements. “We have no indication that any information in these files has been misused.”
