(Newser) – Hackers managed to gain access to up to 160,000 Social Security numbers and 1 million driver's license numbers in a February cyber-attack on Washington state's Administrative Office of the Courts, the AP reports. So far, officials can only say for sure that 94 Social Security numbers were obtained, and they don't think anything more confidential was taken. The state's most upright citizens needn't worry, but anyone who's been booked into a county jail or had a traffic or criminal case between September 2011 and December 2012 may have been affected.

Another nice job of reporting, Newser.
