It appears that some health plans or preferred providers had listed the Social Security numbers as ID numbers. People searching for providers covered by their plans would have seen the numbers. Some health care providers may have had their Social Security numbers used as ID numbers for five years. At least 142 New Hampshire residents were affected, but the number of affected individuals nationwide was not revealed.

The PCPA website was hacked sometime between December 20, 2010 and March 15, 2011. Ticket purchases for PCPA events were not involved since the Ticketmaster website is responsible for those purchases. Information from a total of 864 gift card purchases from the PCPA website between January 1, 2006 and March 15, 2011 was compromised. The total number of customers affected is likely to be lower than 864 since some customers purchased more than one gift card.
