HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A southwestern Montana credit union has notified 135 of its members that some of their personal information could have been publicly accessible through its website between April 15 and June 30.

Rocky Mountain Credit Union President and CEO Ed Stofko says the information technology staff found a security issue with the website customers used to upload documents while applying for a mortgage.

An outside investigation determined it was unlikely that the documents were accessed by an unauthorized person, but the credit union is offering affected members a free one-year membership to credit monitoring and identity theft protection services. The credit union says the security flaw has been repaired.

The credit union says the potentially accessible information included an applicant’s Social Security number, bank account numbers and driver’s license number.

Rocky Mountain Credit Union has branches in Helena, Bozeman, Belgrade and Butte.
