TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Officials in Topeka say the city’s utility billing vendor may have been the victim of a cyber-attack.

The city said in a news release Monday that up to 10,000 customers may have been affected, although a data breach hasn’t been confirmed.

The vendor, Central Square, notified the city of the potential problem Friday. The city’s information technology team then helped transition the vendor to a more secure platform. The team was unable to detect any malicious activity.

Those who may have been affected set up auto-pay or made one-time credit or debit card payments with the vendor from Oct. 31 to Dec. 7.

The city says local law enforcement and the FBI have been notified.
