A programming error at Advanced Data Processing (ADP) caused employee names, Social Security numbers, and total taxable W-2 wages for the tax years 2010, 2011, and 2012 to be exposed.  A group of other US Airway employees were able to download the payroll information of their colleagues.  ADP corrected the issue in early May and notified US Airways in early June.
