Krebs says the SEC is investigating First American data exposure

The SEC is reportedly investigating an alleged security incident involving First American’s website that may have exposed more than 885 million records related to real estate closings and mortgage fundings going back to 2003, cybersecurity expert Brian Krebs said on Monday. Ben Shoval, a Seattle real estate developer cited by Krebs in May as the person who alerted him to the exposed data, said he received a letter last week from the SEC’s enforcement division stating it was investigating.
