Jan Murphy reports:

Last week, Pennsylvania’s chief information security officer Robert Maley was at an information security conference in San Francisco talking about a hacking incident involving PennDOT’s computers. This week, Maley is gone.


Danielle Klinger, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Transportation, said the agency is not aware of any hacking or breach that occurred involving scheduling system for its driving test. However, she said that a few weeks ago, “we did discover an anomaly and we have actually turned that over to [the state police] for further investigation. We’re not sure what that anomaly is, but it is being investigated. Unfortunately, I can’t provide any more details on it.”
