MT: Yellowstone County website hacked

Katrina Heser reports:

The State of Montana Technology Department told Yellowstone County today their website has been hacked.

It’s possible that taxpayers who paid property taxes by electronic bank transfer may have had their account number exposed to the hacker. This does not include taxpayers who made payments by paper check or debit/credit cards. The county system has been taken off line at this time.

The extent of the intrusion has not yet been determined.

    But, how is this possible? Only the account numbers may be exposed to the hacker or details like login ID, password etc.? How debit / credit card details escaped from this?
