SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Secretary of State’s office says it appears credit card information was not compromised when hackers broke into the agency’s network.

Officials said Thursday that the office does not store full credit card information. The office collects money for annual business registration fees, election filing fees and material from the state archives.

Campaign finance and business registration records remain offline as experts try to identify and repair security weaknesses. Officials say the voter registration database was not compromised.

People facing a deadline to pay a fee are urged to check the Secretary of State’s office website for filing and payment options.
