“We are being repeatedly hacked by someone trying to steal our data. That is causing a denial of service to everyone else. Our staff is working with the internet provider to see if there is a way block that person,” Chief Appraiser Marya Crigler told the American-Statesman on Tuesday.
Crigler said no confidential data has been compromised. “All of our data is secure; anything that is confidential is not exposed,” she said.
