Pension Benefit Information, LLC (“PBI”) is a benefits vendor used by Consumer Reports’ vendor, PNC Bank. PBI utilized Progress Software MOVEit Transfer to electronically transfer files between Consumer Reports and PNC Bank; the files contained annuitants’ personal information. A vulnerability was discovered in Progress Software’s MOVEit Transfer on May 29, 2023; and, soon thereafter, PBI learned annuitants’ personal information had been exposed when an unauthorized character accessed their MOVEit Transfer servers. Consumer Reports learned about the exposure of annuitants’ information from PNC on July 24, 2023; and on August 18, 2023, PBI was expected to notify the impacted individuals that their names, dates of birth, social security numbers, resident states/zip codes had been exposed. If you receive a notification that your personal information was compromised due to PBI’s use of the Progress Software MOVEit Transfer and you would like additional information about your legal rights, you can contact Goldenberg Schneider, LPA by calling 513-982-1569, sending an email to [email protected] or completing the “Contact Us” form to the right.
