MN: Thousands Potentially Affected in Pine County Data Breach

Joe Keyport reports:

Pine County says that around 4,400 people may have their data breached after a county employee had their email account accessed by unauthorized personnel.

The incident happened in June when the county’s payroll department received an email request to change the direct deposit for an employee’s paycheck, something that must be done with a hardcopy form and employee signature. Pine County’s IT department was then notified, and it was determined that the employee’s email password was compromised.
