Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports of a data leak that exposed hundreds of millions of documents related to mortgage deals involving First American, a massive data leak that First American has acknowledged took place.

The leaked data is said to include bank account numbers and statement, mortgage and tax records, Social Security numbers, wire transaction receipts, and drivers licenses of persons who did mortgage deals involving First American dating as far back as 2003. The leaked information was available on First American’s website, without any need for authentication, to anyone on the Internet with access to the URLs. It is not currently known if persons accessed the information on a large scale. First American allegedly had the information available on its website dating back to March 2017 before taking the information down from its website on May 24, 2019.
