Hackers were able to gain access to names, addresses and phone numbers of contact sheets used for sales purposes, and in some instances, Social Security numbers, health notes, doctor information, medication names and dates of birth were breached. The breach occurred between March and June 2016 and was first observed on June 27, 2016. Officials are unsure of how many of its records were accessed, according to California public radio station, KPCC.
