Widespread malware attack affects some Ascensus clients

Ascensus Inc.  notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office this week that  on April 15, they were notified by federal investigators that computers on their network had been infected by a “new malware virus” that had infected a lot of companies’ computers.  A forensic examination revealed that the malware had created files containing some individuals’ names and Social Security Numbers, but it was not clear to investigators whether the data had actually been accessed.

Letters to those affected were to have gone out on July 28, so if you have an IRA administered by Ascensus, you might want to check for mail from them.
