Court hackers may have hit here

Staff writer

Marion County residents soon may be getting letters telling them what resources are available so they can protect themselves after court records were breached in a cyberattack Oct. 12 on the state’s court information system.

Lisa Taylor, public information director for the Kansas Office of Judicial Administration, said a vendor was contacting people whose personal information was accessed.

No numbers for Marion County are yet available, but in Junction City, 775 residents are being notified.

Up to 150,000 people’s personal information may have been breached.

Information accessed in the cyberattack could have included names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, drivers’ license numbers, other government identification card numbers, tax identification, financial account information, payment card information, passport numbers, health information, and health insurance policy information.

The court system will notify people only by letter. People will not get phone calls, texts, or emails about the incident.

The letters will show Kansas Judicial Branch as the sender but have a Sacramento address.

Anyone with questions can get more information by calling (888) 861-6382 between a.m. and 8 p.m. or by emailing
