Some of the information that was compromised and posted by the hacker(s) public website includes the following:
The FAC has been shut down for almost a month now due to this security incident. While the FAC IT forensic investigation continues, there is no action required by filers at this time. However, there have been concerns over submissions that are coming due. Recently, the FAC issued a formal submission extension that reads as follows:
(put in colored box)“Due dates between 7/22 – 9/30/2015 are extended to 10/31/2015.” The extension should address concerns about December 31, 2014, and other year-end single audit submissions that fall within this due date range.
Once the FAC is back online, you will be forced to change your password. As recommended by the FAC and IT professionals, it is a best practice to regularly change your password.
