Wickliffe Mayor Thomas W. Ruffner announced Friday that hackers had
breached security in one of the city's three computer servers, which
held personal information on some city employees.
The breach was discovered by Building Commissioner Ray Sack, who
brought it to the attention of Ruffner and city police.
Detective Sgt. Joe Matteo said a malicious virus had gotten through at
least two layers of security and into the system, where information on
125 city employees was stored.
No information on city residents was stored in the server or
compromised, Ruffner said. Those affected included service department
and part-time personnel whose names and Social Security numbers were
in the system.
Employees affected by the breach will be notified today in a letter
from the mayor advising them of potential problems involving identity
or credit theft, although no reports of either had been reported as of
