Colonie website compromised

Town’s site down for days, source of problem unclear

— “We don’t gather any type of citizen or resident information. We just show a schedule for meetings, agendas, minutes. My guess is that we were not necessarily targeted because we don’t really have any information you can steal,” Travis said. “I mean, you want to steal an agenda meeting’s minutes?”

It is still unclear when the website will be back up and running and when it will be safe to access.

“My advice would be if anybody had been on our website beginning last Friday, Nov. 16, they should make sure they have an up-to-date Malware program. And run a full scan of their computer,” Wiest said.
