“We have recently learned of potential unauthorized access to servers containing personal information from a subset of merchant applicants,” Paul Garcia, Global Payments’ chairman and CEO, said during a conference call with shareholders on Tuesday.

It’s not clear whether the attackers actually accessed or copied the merchant data stored on the server, Garcia said. “However, we are notifying certain individuals in the U.S. whose personal information may have been subject to access.”
