MASON, OH (AP) - Authorities in southwest Ohio have asked the FBI to investigate a computer breach involving thousands of personnel files at eyewear company Luxottica Group.
Lt. Jeff Braley of the Warren County Cyber Crimes Task Force says a hacker got into payroll records on more than 59,000 former employees of Luxottica, which has its North American headquarters in Mason.
Company officials informed police in September that a hacker had accessed Social Security numbers and addresses of employees of Cleveland-based Things Remembered, a chain Luxottica sold in 2006.
Braley says it isn't clear whether anyone has used the information to steal identities.
Special Agent Mike Brooks confirmed Wednesday that the FBI had received the case but said he couldn't comment further.
