According to the data incident notice:

The unauthorized access may have occurred as early as August 25, 2010. . . .

[Dominion National has] undertaken a comprehensive review of the data stored or potentially accessible from those computer servers and [has] determined that the data may include enrollment and demographic information for current and former members of Dominion National and Avalon vision, and current and former members of plans [Dominion National] provide administrative services for. In addition, the data may include personal information for producers who placed Dominion National and Avalon vision policies, and healthcare providers participating in the insurance programs of Dominion National. The member information may have included names, addresses, email addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, member ID numbers, group numbers, and subscriber numbers. For members who enrolled online through Dominion National’s website, their bank account and routing numbers may have also been included in the data. The provider information may have included names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and/or taxpayer identification numbers. The producer information may have included names and Social Security numbers. [Emphasis added.]
