WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - The City of Wichita says it has made strides in recovering files that were compromised in this month's cyberattack.

The city says that certain files were copied from their computer network without their permission between May 3 and 4, including names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license or state identification card numbers, and payment card information.

The city identified that the incident is related to a security vulnerability that has affected organizations worldwide, and has been putting mitigation measures in place to restore systems. In addition, the city is coordinating with law enforcement on their investigation into the incident.

For those that wish to take protective steps to secure their data, the city is directing residents to place a fraud alert on a credit file through Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion. In addition, a credit freeze on a credit report can also be requested, which may require information such as your full name, Social Security number, current and former addresses, and a copy of a police report.

The city is continuing to provide updates on the cyberattack through this site.
