Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp.’s president says the company may never be
able to confirm if nearly one-third of its customers’ banking information has
been compromised by a cyber security breach in February.
The utility said in a statement Tuesday that it has completed an internal
investigation of the online security attack. The company said it had hired
forensic computer experts to conduct the investigation.
An external investigation by police is expected to continue, said James P.
Laurito, Central Hudson’s president. Experts determined that “malware” designed
to seek out and export information had infiltrated Central Hudson’s computer
last year, but it cannot be confirmed whether any such export occurred.
Laurito said customers should continue to monitor their bank records.
