City of Lubbock Online Job Database Experiences Security Breach

November 7, 2006

The City of Lubbock is calling 5,800 people. That's because their social security numbers may have been stolen. The city's web site was apparently hacked into.

At this point, it appears the only information affected was the online job application database, which again is about 5,800 people.

Assistant City Manager Mark Yearwood says, "We believe that the chance that their information is used illegally is so remote but we still have a responsibility to notify those people."

The city is apparently working to implement new security measures to prevent any further incidents.
