that could compromise the personal information of as many as 233,000 Americans across the country.ABC 27 reported that Paytime, based in the Upper Allen Township near Mechanicsburg, Pa., released the statement because of a data breach in which hackers accessed the payroll company’s client service center on April 7.

While the vast majority of the affected individuals reside in Pennsylvania, there are affected individuals in almost all 50 states.”
