CIO on leave after security test mistaken for hack
The CIO of the City of Tulsa, Oklahoma, on administrative leave after website 'hack' turned out to be third-party security test
Last week, the city government of Tulsa, Oklohoma, warned citizens that its website had been hacked.
It told them that it had detected an unauthorised attempt to access its web infrastructure, and warned them that their personal information may have been compromised. "The City of Tulsa immediately took a variety of measures to protect individuals potentially impacted through a thorough review of the available logs," it said in a letter to people who had applied for a job through the website.
