The City of Tulsa said they were made aware Tuesday that more than 18,000 city files were shared to the dark web as a result of the recent ransomware attack.
The city said the files were mainly internal department files and police citations, which do contain some personal information such as name, date of birth, address and driver’s license number. They said these citations do not include social security numbers.
The city said their Incident Response Team and federal authorities continue to investigate the breach and monitor information.
Officials ask residents, out of an abundance of caution, to monitor financial accounts, credit reports and take additional authentication measures in personal accounts.
