SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Credit Karma glitch showed users the information, credit scores of other users

A "technical issue" has exposed the personal data of some Credit Karma users, including their credit scores.

According to credit monitoring service Credit Karma, a "limited number" of people were shown other users' credit reports after logging in. Information like names, addresses, credit scores, and other credit factors were exposed. No Social Security numbers or account numbers were shown, says the company.

Credit Karma said that less than 0.5 percent of their users were affected. They will be notifying those whose information was exposed, and said that the issue is now fixed. A Credit Karma spokesperson said there was no evidence of a data breach.
