BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Information Technology Department has completed its investigation of a cyber-attack against a state-run server and says it has identified two additional state agencies that may have been affected.

State officials said in June they discovered a data breach on one of their servers that stores information from the state’s Workforce Safety and Insurance agency. State officials maintain there is no evidence that the cyber-attackers moved or duplicated any personally identifiable information.

Officials now say approximately 950 members of the Teachers’ Fund for Retirement were affected by the attack, with information including names and Social Security numbers potentially accessed.

Additionally 145 volunteers with the state Department of Health were potentially affected.

The state is using a nationally recognized company to provide free credit repair services to those affected.
