Copart Auction Site - HACKED

I just received this letter from Copart auto auctions stating they were hacked on March 31st 2015. If you’re unfamiliar with Copart, they’re the largest online car auction site in the world with car lots in almost every US metro and in many countries globally. If you need a good deal on a used, salvage or parts car, this is the place to go. (www.copart.com).

What’s concerning is, besides having the names, addresses, email and phone numbers of all their members, they also have color photo copies of member drivers licenses/passport identification attached to corresponding accounts. Copart keeps credit card information for most members as I’ve paid online for a car with shipping and it kept the method of payment on file however the letter does state the information wasn’t included with the breach, this leads me to believe the breach was more far reaching than they’re letting on. Do you guys think hackers can use the drivers license information maliciously?
