Canada's Desjardins credit union announced Thursday that the personal banking information of 2.9 million customers had been stolen by an employee and distributed to outside parties.

The nation's largest credit union and fifth-largest in the world, with Can$304 billion (US$230 billion) in assets under its management, had noted unauthorized access to its members' information last December, but it was only confirmed by police last Friday.

In a statement it said police confirmed to the credit union that the personal information of 2.9 million members "had been shared with individuals outside the organization. This includes 2.7 million individual members and 173,000 business members."

This included names, date of birth, contact information and banking habits. Passwords and other security information were not compromised.
