The City of Tulsa website is taken down after an apparent attack by hackers.
City spokesperson Michelle Allen said information on one of the City's computer servers,was targeted by an unknown source. Technology officers with the City have taken the web sites temporarily offline while they work to identify the extent and nature of the incident.
"City officials have confirmed that no City of Tulsa water or refuse utility customer information was ever accessed," Allen said. "We can assure our customers that no financial information associated with their accounts was involved."
Allen went on to explain that the server in question does not house that information, and there is no indication that the City's trusted network was accessed. The city's e-mail system was also unaffected.
