North Carolina Boy Scouts PII compromised

A third-party vendor that handles sales for the Boy Scouts of America suffered a data breach exposing the PII of up to 12,900 Mecklenburg County Council scouts.

Trails End last week told the North Carolina Scouts that information including children’s full names, dates of birth, email addresses, phone number, parent names, favorite product and affiliation (council, district, unit) were compromised, according to the Charlotte Agenda.

Trails End said that while it found problem, the company did not say how long the information was publicly available or exactly how many of the Council’s members were involved.

SC Media has requested more information from the Boy Scouts of America.
