Fidelity National Information Services, a financial processing company, said Tuesday a subsidiary's employee stole 2.3 million consumer records containing credit card, bank account and other personal information.

The employee sold the information a data broker who sold it to several direct marketing companies, but the data was not used in identity theft or other fraudulent financial activity, Fidelity said in a statement.

About 2.2 million records stolen from Certegy Check Services Inc. contained bank account information and 99,000 contained credit card information, Fidelity said.

The employee, whose name was not released, was fired.
