Montana health department computer containing personal info hacked

Mike Dennison reports:

Hackers got into a state Health Department computer holding large amounts of personal information on state employees and public clients, state officials said Thursday, but there’s no indication yet that any information was stolen.

State Department of Public Health and Human Services Director Richard Opper said the computer server was taken off-line as soon as the unauthorized intrusion was discovered 10 days ago.

The server, one of three holding the massive health agency’s data, had personal and health information on clients using programs like food stamps, Opper said.
