TYLER — For the second time in about a month, the city of Tyler’s website has been hacked.
The city received notification of a website compromise about 9:30 a.m. Friday, a written statement by the city said. Within five minutes, contact was made with the city’s off-site, third-party website contractor, and the site was taken offline. The site will remain under maintenance until further notice.
A contractor hosts the city’s website. Only the website itself was compromised. No payment platforms or government service sites hosting credit card and residents’ personal information were compromised, the city said.
“We are investigating this incident with the website contractor, city of Tyler IT Department and the Tyler Police Department,” the city said.
The city said it will release information as it becomes available, but details were limited Friday afternoon.
