Indiana Office of Technology reports security breach of Web site

About 5,600 credit card numbers compromised

INDIANAPOLIS — Someone may have accessed credit card information of about 5,600 people and businesses from the state government’s Web site, the Indiana Office of Technology said Friday.

The state has sent letters to those affected explaining what happened and that the problems have since been fixed. The state is asking those who receive a letter to review their credit card statements and report any questionable activity to credit companies.

The letter said the state has implemented the highest levels of security.

“Despite these efforts, the State’s Web site recently experienced a security breach during which some credit card numbers were obtained without authorization,” the letter said.

Because of technical errors, those numbers were not encrypted, so someone may have viewed the unscrambled numbers. For more information, those affected can call the state’s security hotline at 888-438-8397.
