Chegg has confirmed its third data breach in the past three years.
The education tech giant, which last year was acquired by Thinkful for $80 million, said hackers stole 700 current and former employee records, including their names and Social Security numbers.
Chegg said it enlisted an outside forensic firm — without naming the firm — and notified law enforcement of the breach.
A spokesperson for Chegg did not respond to a request for comment.
