Missing ABC7 I-Team Info About Illinois Concealed Carry Security Breach

Earlier tonight, my girlfriend and I were eating dinner in front of the TV when investigative reporter Chuck Goudie appeared with his latest ABC7 I-Team segment about a security breach with the Illinois Concealed Carry License application process. From the website of Chicago ABC affiliate Channel 7 late this evening:

The ABC7 I-Team has learned some people who applied for Illinois concealed carry gun permits are being notified of a computer glitch that may have allowed other applicants to see their personal information.

State police tell the I-Team the problem happened on the first day that people were able to apply using the Illinois concealed carry website. The problem was discovered January 5 and the letters sent out by state police are dated March 4…

A state police spokesperson says the problem lasted only during a short period of time and there’s no evidence any personal information was stolen.

The “investigative report” that my girlfriend and I watched on TV around dinnertime went into more detail about the extent of the “computer glitch,” including:

1. Credit card, debit card, and Social Security numbers could have been viewed

2. At least 2 unauthorized views were detected

Not cool.
