PA: Another Paytime client affected by hack notifies employees

Eric Veronikis reports that about 200 employees of Carlisle Borough are being notified of the breach at payroll processor Paytime, Inc.:

Carlisle learned this week that its payroll information was compromised as the company it formerly used to process pay slips recently discovered a data breach that put the personal information of its customers’ employees at risk of being stolen.

Upper Allen Township-based Paytime Inc. handled the borough’s payroll processing duties in 2008 and 2009. The firm said it notified its customers on April 30 that due to a data breach it discovered last month, hackers could have gained access to employee names, social security numbers, bank account information, home addresses, birth dates, hire dates, wage information, home and cellphone numbers and other related payroll information. Paytime would not disclose how many records were affected by the hacking incident during an earlier interview with PennLive.

So why was Paytime still retaining the data of a former client in a way that allowed hackers to access it?
