In yet another data breach of the year, PayPal has admitted that it was an indirect victim of a security breach that resulted in the leak of over 1.6 million customers' data.
Meanwhile PayPal assured: "The PayPal platform is not impacted in any way, as the TIO systems are completely separate from the PayPal network, and PayPal's customers' data remains secure".
It said it had entirely suspended TIO's operations as of November 10 "to protect customer data as part of an ongoing investigation of security vulnerabilities of the TIO platform". And, according to reports, the company hasn't yet even contacted all customers. For TIO consumers who were affected by the data breach, PayPal is offering free credit monitoring services via Experian.
"At this point, TIO can not provide a timeline for restoring bill pay services and continues to recommend that you contact your biller to identify alternative ways to pay your bills", TIO said. "We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to you by the disruption of TIO's service".
