Alleged Cyber Hacker Foiled in Iroquois County

Iroquois County authorities are reporting an attempt to hack the county computer network.

The FBI has been notified about the attempt to hack on-line bank accounts and an attempt to transfer county funds.  No county funds were lost during the attempt.  Security measures already set up by Iroquois County and the banks prevented the hacking and transfer from being successful.

Additional security measures are being put in place.

The Iroquois County State’s Attorney’s Office and the county Sheriff’s Department are investigating the attempted cyber hack.
