City Computers In Akron Hacked

May 17, 2013

Officials in Akron say the city's website and internal systems have been hacked - and names, Social Security numbers and credit card information were compromised.

Deputy Mayor Rick Merolla says the attacks, apparently by a Turkish group that has claimed credit, penetrated the city's firewall sometime yesterday. He says the city is working with the FBI's cybercrimes unit on the situation.
