Hackers Get $498,000 from City of Tallahassee’s Employee Payroll

Nearly half a million dollars was diverted out of the city of Tallahassee’s employee payroll after a suspected foreign cyberattack of the city's human resources management application. The out-of-state, third-party vendor that hosts the city's payroll services was hacked and as a result the direct deposit paychecks were redirected. Employees throughout the city’s workforce were affected.
