It only took one security specialist to take down a huge identity theft ring

Sometimes, huge forces of good or evil can be brought down by a single person. Such is the case with a larger hacking group that was taken down by one.

The pranksters who exposed the credit reports and Social Security numbers of dozens of prominent Americans used a hidden identity-theft service that tapped directly into some of the biggest data aggregators in the country, a new report states.

Independent security researcher Brian Krebs revealed on his Krebs on Security blog yesterday (Sept. 25) that the service, known as SSNDOB (Social Security Number Date of Birth) used malware to obtain secret access to the databases of LexisNexis, Dun & Bradstreet and Kroll Background America.
