ExamSoft Data Breach Lawsuit Investigation
According to recent reports, many law school graduates have reported instances of identity theft and fraud after downloading software from exam administrator ExamSoft Inc. in order to take the bar exam. More than 50 individuals who downloaded ExamSoft software in advance of the October Pennsylvania bar exam asked the state attorney general to investigate the security of ExamSoft Inc. after experiencing possible fraud.
“Pennsylvania bar applicants began to express concerns about the security of their personal data, including bank account login information, almost immediately after ExamSoft software became available for download on September 1, 2020,” the letter said. “We request that the Bureau of Consumer Protection investigate why bar applicants who downloaded ExamSoft experienced data breaches and whether ExamSoft’s data security measures are adequate to protect its users’ data.”
ExamSoft has already been targeted in a distributed denial-of-service attack when administered the Michigan bar exam in July. Stueve Siegel Hanson previously prosecuted a case against the National Board of Examiners in Optometry for a similar breach, which resulted in a $3.25 million settlement.
