From Nine To Noon, 9:05 am on 28 March 2023

The number of people caught up in the hacking of data from financial company Latitude is higher than first thought - so what options are there for affected Kiwis?

Latitude was hacked two weeks ago, with an initial 330,000 people at risk - but that's now risen to 14 million - including 7.9 million Kiwis and Australians whose driver's licences were stolen.

Kiwibank has confirmed at least 2000 customers' ID details have been taken.
