Minnesota Senate computers hacked, passwords file accessed


The Minnesota State Capitol.

ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Senate's servers were breached Tuesday morning, June 2, and hackers were able to access a file of passwords used by senators and staff, Senate officials said later in the evening.

The breach prompted the Senate's information services to quickly take down the Senate's website and begin slowly rebuilding pages. As of 6 p.m., a number of Senate web pages were still down.

The attack succeeded early Tuesday morning, according to a letter sent Tuesday evening to senators and staff from Secretary of the Senate Cal Ludeman.
