IRS now Admits Last Year’s Hack was Much Worse than Originally Stated

The IRS has admitted that last year’s hack was far worse than originally stated. When the IRS first reported a hack that exposed taxpayer accounts’ vulnerable information, it pegged the number of affected people at a little over 100,000. Now, in its second upward revision, the number of affected people now stands at over 700,000.
