One of the largest lab testing clinics in the U.S. is dealing with a massive hack.

Quest Diagnostics says the personal information of nearly 12 million customers may have been compromised.

That includes social security numbers and medical information, but not test results.

According to Quest, an “unauthorized user” gained access to a system used by a billing vendor.

It’s still unclear which customers might have been affected.

The company has about 2,200 locations across the United States, three of the locations are in northwest Arkansas and two are in Fort Smith.
