Green Bay Police say they are investigating the hacking of a local corporation’s computer network, resulting in the theft of “significant amounts of money” from victims in the organization.
Police did not immediately identify the company that was attacked. Action 2 News will work to find that out.
Officers say the hackers stole human resources information.
“In this case, it appeared the cyber actors utilized a known vulnerability to access the company’s computer systems and human resources software to steal personal identifying information from employees,” reads a statement from Capt. Jeremy Muraski.
Police say the vulnerability was a known issue and a security patch had not been installed and updated.
“This incident demonstrates how vital it is to maintain public facing computer systems with the latest security patches from the server companies as cyber actors will attempt to use exploits as long as they are finding vulnerable systems,” reads the statement from Capt. Muraski.
