Malware Found in DPHHS Server

Posted: Updated:
HELENA - Hackers gained access to the Montana Department of Public health and Human Services computer servers for nearly a year and now agency officials don't know whether the information stored there was compromised.

The findings discovered malware in DPHHS servers that contained client and employee information such as bank account numbers, addresses, and even social security numbers. Richard Opper, the director of DPHHS says though the hackers made it into the server there is no indication that the information was used or even accessed.

Opper said when suspicious activity was discovered they immediately shut down the servers, but the investigation concluded that hackers had access since last July. If you believe your personal information has been compromised contact the DPHHS Hotline at 800-809-2956.
