Over the weekend, there was a cyber attack outbreak for Central Hudson, whose customers are now being warned that their personal banking data may be in compromise.
"Our (information technology) team is continuing the investigation," said John Maserjian, spokesman for Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corps. "We're waiting to hear more about what they discovered so far and we will provide an update when we find conclusive information....We decided to err on the side of caution and at least let our customers know that it appears a cyber attack may have caused some banking information to be compromised," he said.
Some Central Hudson customers are frustrated with the way that the company is handling the situation. The company has been notifying their customers via an automated message, some of which claim they have not received any notification whatsoever. One listener posted on our sister station WKIP's facebook page stating,
"Ummmmm, we were never notified! THis is sort of like the way they treat us after a power outage, no service and no communications of any sort!"
Central Hudson is handling the situation as best as they can. The company has advised that if any customers suspect any indication of unusual activity with their personal account or credit, to have local law enforcement involved as soon as it is spotted.
