Robinhood • Data breach

Robinhood Markets Inc. said personal information of about 7 million people — or roughly a third of its customers — was compromised in a data breach last week and that the culprit demanded payment. 

The intruder obtained email addresses of about 5 million people as well as full names for a separate group of about 2 million, Robinhood said Monday in a statement. For some customers, even more personal data was exposed, including names, birth dates and ZIP codes of about 310 people, and more extensive information belonging to a group of about 10.

The Menlo Park, California-based brokerage said it believes no Social Security, bank account or debit-card numbers were exposed during the Nov. 3 incident, nor that customers incurred financial losses.
