IA: Data breach found in city of Ames’ parking ticket payment system. It’s Click2Gov, again.
The Ames Tribune reports on yet another breach report involving Click2Gov (by CentralSquare Technologies):
A data breach to the city’s parking ticket payment system may have affected 4,600 customers who paid a city-issued ticket on the city’s online payment system between Aug. 10 and Nov. 19, city officials said Friday in a news release.[…]
The city was notified on Nov. 18 that the system, which links to a third-party vendor (Click2Gov) may have been breached. City IT staff notified the vendor and initiated a series of customer safety steps, the release stated.
Why is this still happening? Was the city notified earlier this year about any vulnerabilities that needed to be patched or software updates that were needed?
And how many more Click2Gov breaches have we yet to hear about?
