City of Newburgh victim of cybersecurity breach; some services disrupted

NEW BURGH Early on Tuesday morning, representatives of the City of Newburgh reported a network security problem that caused a brief interruption of certain City services.

In an effort to fully restore operations, the City has hired outside IT specialists and other professionals, and they are working nonstop. Permit fees, parking tickets, water, sewer, and sanitation taxes cannot currently be processed or paid for by the City. Public access to City Hall and 123 Grand Street services will be suspended indefinitely.

Emergency lines for the City Police and Fire departments are unaffected, and 911 calls are operating normally. Although the security breach may have affected both phone and email systems, residents can still contact City departments using the current phone numbers and emails. Delays in message transmission and response times may arise from this.

Officials from the City of Newburgh will keep the public informed on the restoration of services via their official social media accounts and website.
