SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon secretary of state’s office says its computer systems have been shut down after someone hacked the agency’s website.

The agency says in a news release Wednesday that the intrusion was “detected and stopped,” and law enforcement was notified. Officials are investigating the scope of the network intrusion.

Several online systems have been taken offline, including the Central Business Registry and campaign finance database. Officials say the voter registration database is on a separate system and was not affected.

It was not immediately clear whether personal information has been compromised.
