City officials say the hackers stole information from a website used to track city work orders, but no sensitive information has been released.

On Friday, June 23 the City’s Information Technology Solutions Department was told about a post that said the City’s website had been hacked.

They believe the hackers stole credentials to log in to the website used by workers. 

“Those attachments include things like photographs, spreadsheets, invoices for work performed, PDF documents, emails between staff and other information related to work orders,” Gunn explained.

“No indication that any other systems were accessed, nor any other evidence of sensitive information such as social security or banking information was accessed or released,” said Gunn.

Fort Worth said the post indicated that they believe the information was posted in an attempt to embarrass the city.
