WCVB/5 News Boston reports that the vendor that prints up licenses for Massachusetts, technology company IDEMIA, which is headquartered in Virginia, says the process of replacing the credentials has already begun.

Replacement driver's licenses and ID cards started going out in the mail this past Monday, June 6. So if you do need a replacement, luckily, you won't have to do anything. It will be mailed right to you.

Those people that do receive a replacement are being told to destroy the old card or license. Apparently, the reason for all of this is that due to the "printer error", the cards that are being replaced lack certain fraud protections.
