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.
