Legal professional body reports massive breach

The American Bar Association (ABA) suffered a massive data breach that leaked the user credentials of more than a million members. ABA notified affected individuals that it detected unauthorized third-party access on March 17, 2023.


The legal professional body initiated an incident response plan and engaged external cybersecurity experts to assist with the investigation. On March 23, 2023, the investigation determined that the threat actor gained access to a decommissioned server around March 06, 2023, and obtained certain client information.

ABA notified approximately 1.4 million potential data breach victims, urging them to change their login information, including on other sites reusing the leaked user credentials.
