PSS World Medical applicants affected by job boards breach

In a breach notification letter sent to the New Hampshire State Attorney General, PSS World Medical states that the company “recently became aware of an incident involving unauthorized access” to company’s career board website. The unauthorized access resulted in the exposure of personal information belonging to job applicants and others that may have posted their information on the site. No additional details were disclosed by PSS World Medical.

The event may have resulted in unauthorized access to certain personal information such as name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number and Social Security number of certain individuals who posted their information to the career board website. While personal information may have been accessed, there is no evidence that any information has been obtained or misused.

Concerned users can call toll-free at (866) 371-2502, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 AM -5:00PM Eastern. Free credit monitoring will be provided to the affected persons, although it is not clear for how long.
