PayPal's TIO Networks suffered a data breach that may have compromised the personally identifiable information (PII) of up to 1.6 million of TIO's customers, PayPal Holdings announced late last week.
TIO, a payment processing company PayPal acquired in July, had its operations suspended last month after PayPal's ongoing investigation revealed TIO's network had been breached.
