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.
