The Oklahoma Publishing Company has become aware of a malicious software threat, commonly known as malware, on its websites. With assistance from the FBI, it was determined that one of OPUBCO’s servers had been compromised, resulting in a potential threat affecting a limited number of Internet Explorer users who accessed the home pages of NewsOK.com and Oklahoman.com. The FBI works with large corporations in tracking cyber attacks.
This malware does not affect Mac computers, Firefox, Safari and Chrome browsers or mobile users. No personal financial information was compromised.
"We quickly responded, isolated and removed the immediate threat," said Chris Reen, publisher of The Oklahoman. "We are continuing to monitor the situation and we will communicate more information, if need be."
