TxDOT computer system in “security incident”

KXAN reports:

 The Texas Department of Transportation says some personal information of employees was compromised last week due to a “security incident.”

KXAN first learned of the system breach from sources late Tuesday. The department says the breach of TxDOT’s automated administrative system was discovered Friday afternoon. The agency says “a small number of employees” personal information was potentially altered and compromised.

So far, this seems to be getting relatively little media attention, but it sounds like it could be potentially serious. I hope the state will be more transparent when they conclude their investigation and remediation so we find out what really happened here. Were particular employees targeted for data alteration or was it an artifact of some hack, or…..?
