The recent slew of massive hacks are costing you money — your U.S. government tax refund.
Last year alone, hackers stole more than 6.5 million Social Security numbers. The number of SSNs stolen this year might be significantly higher, given the recent Anthem hack of 80 million customers. (The company hasn’t yet said how many SSNs were lost.)
Stolen SSNs are flooding online black markets — and they’re selling fast.
