Data breach could affect up to 374000 Duke Energy customers

During the course of the investigation, PayPal also uncovered a major data breach of TIO Networks which compromised personal information of as many as 1.6 million customers. While PayPal said it has not found actual proof that data was stolen, it found enough evidence to treat the vulnerability as a data breach.

In a statement, the company said that unknown attackers were able to gain access to "locations that stored personal information of some of TIO's customers and customers of TIO billers".

In total, up to 1.6 million customers may have had their information leaked, which could include personally identifiable information (PII) or potentially financial data.

PayPal brought in "additional third-party cybersecurity expertise to review TIO's bill payment platform", TIO continued. TIO owns Global Express, which is an authorized payment processing network that Duke Energy uses at walk-in locations.

On November 10, PayPal announced that it suspended TIO's operations after it discovered security vulnerabilities in the firm's platform and issues with its data security program that "did not adhere to PayPay's information security standards".

In a statement, the VP of Revenue Services for Duke Energy, Lesley Quick, said "This TIO Networks issue has possibly and unfortunately affected some of our customers, and we are doing all we can to help". Meanwhile, PayPal is working with consumer credit reporting agency Experian to offer customers free credit monitoring memberships as well.

The possible compromise of info affects the customers of any company that uses the Global Express network for payment processing, officials said. "We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to you by the disruption of TIO's service".
