Hackers tried to slip Trojan viruses into St. Louis County’s website, but never got in, IT director says

Jeremy Kohler reports:

 St. Louis County government’s information technology staff took down the county website on Sept. 1 after discovering attacks on its server designed to take control of the site, the IT director said Monday.

They were able to respond to the threat before the hackers could succeed, acting IT director Charles Henderson said in an email on Monday. He said no data was lost, compromised, stolen or corrupted in the attack.
