Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague’s website was hacked, but his office said no payment systems were compromised.
Sprague’s office learned early Monday that three pieces of “outside code” were inserted into its website, spokeswoman Brittany Halpin wrote in an email. It is investigating the origin and intent of the code.
Halpin said no malware was distributed and none of the payment systems that are part of Sprague’s website were compromised. That includes links to outside payment sites.
The website was “quarantined” after the new code was discovered and transferred to new servers. Sprague’s website was temporarily offline as the server was rebooted overnight on Monday.
It now appears to be up and running as normal.
The Department of Administrative Services said no other state government systems were hacked.
