Omaha Public School employees warned of hacker

Joe Dejka reports:

A computer hacker may have obtained Social Security numbers and other personal information of more than 4,300 current and former Omaha Public Schools employees.

An investigation into the attack on the Omaha School Employees Retirement System website, detected Dec. 21, was unable to determine whether information was stolen, Michael Smith, executive director of the system, said Thursday.

“We have yet to be able to prove to ourselves that they were unsuccessful,” Smith said.


The hackers attacked a database of names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, years of service and beneficiaries. The database did not contain bank or credit card information, but the personal information in it could be used for identity theft, he said.
