WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Officials say tech company SevOne was the victim of a cybersecurity attack.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports (https://delonline.us/1P06YL9) company officials say the data breach occurred Monday. The newspaper obtained a copy of an email sent to staff from SevOne’s Chief Legal Officer Diane Pyron.

The company confirmed it released W-2 wage and tax data to an unauthorized recipient outside the company.

That information is believed to include Social Security numbers, home addresses, dates of birth and other personal information that could put current and former employees at risk for identity fraud.

Pyron wrote that the company is investigating the incident. Pyron says at this time, they don’t believe any other SevOne data was affected.

Company officials declined to comment to the newspaper Wednesday on details about the data breach.
