Another day, another notable breach: This time it's a PayPal firm

PayPal has revealed that its recently acquired company TIO Networks has suffered a data breach compromising the personal information of 1.6 million customers.

TIO Networks, a Canadian subsidiary of PayPal, was hit with a data breach that may have exposed personal information from over one million consumers. TIO Networks operates over 60,000 bill payment kiosks across North America and has over 14 million registered users who use its services to make bill payments for wireless connections, cable, utilities, and other kinds of purchases. "We regret the frustration and inconvenience this issue has created for our customers who rely on our walk-in locations to pay their monthly energy bills".

PayPal said TIO systems would not be restored until it could be confident about their security and could not give a firm deadline.

Officials said the breach is a TIO issue and that Duke Energy is doing all that it can to help.
