Tax refund hackers

Online thieves were recently able to get their hands on taxpayer identification numbers before the Internal Revenue Service detected the attack and shut it down. As the number of tax returns being filed online has continued to rise, so has the number of attempted fake files by hackers to steal your refund.

The attack last week involved specialized software that used more than 450,000 stolen Social Security numbers to try to generate e-filing PINs. Attempts involving about 100,000 of those SSNs were successful, the IRS said. The documents have information that can be used not just to steal your tax dollars, but also to break into other systems, like your bank, credit card or social-networking accounts. Be careful when filing your return online!
