Scottrade Hacked

A user on FatWallet Forums reports that online broker Scottrade has revealed why it is currently no longer offering eCheck ACH money transfers - they've been hacked! Here an excerpt:

They lost all our information including the following:

name, drivers license, date of birth, phone number, bank name, bank code, bank number, bank routing number, bank account number and if you used your Social Security number instead of a DL#, that is now stolen too! The hackers got the motherlode.

Not cool. I hope that Ameritrade I-Zone, my discount broker, uses the same level of security as the parent broker Ameritrade.
