Idaho Fish & Game issues warning re: data breach

The warning came after Fish & Game officials held a conference call with their vendor, Texas-based Active Network, this afternoon. “They said it’s potential,” said Idaho Fish and Game spokesman Mike Keckler. “And if it’s potential, we felt like we have to let our sportsmen know about this. It doesn’t mean that personal information was accessed, we don’t know that.”

The reason that only those who began purchasing licenses and tags before 2008 are affected is because of an update Active Network made to its system in that year, which changed how individuals were identified within the system. However, the update only applied to new customers, not those already in the system. “Those who made their first license purchase after 2008 are not at risk,” Fish and Game said in a news release this evening.
