1,700 Detroit employees' personal data breached

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit says a recent computer security breach affected files that contained personal identifying information of about 1,700 city employees.

City chief information officer Beth Niblock said at a news conference Monday that a city employee apparently clicked on a malicious software link in an email that released a code that froze access to numerous files.

Niblock says two files included information such as the names, birth dates and Social Security numbers for the current and former employees.

She says it doesn't appear that the malicious code gained access to information that was in the files. She says the city is notifying affected employees by mail.

The city says it's taking "significant measures" to inform its employees of the breach and to make sure they're protected.
