SENECA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The City of Seneca warns people who do business with the City that their banking information may have been compromised following an attack on its computer system.

According to its Facebook page, city officials learned late Thursday morning that unknown individuals breached their network around 1:30 p.m. the previous day. They say the suspects were trying to steal "a substantial amount of money," but failed.

All customers or vendors who have provided banking information to the City are cautioned that their personal information may have been stolen.

Local law enforcement and the FBI are trying to determine the extent of the breach and, when they do, they plan to notify anyone affected as they learn more, the City said.

They added that anyone who notices irregular transactions on their accounts should contact their bank and local law enforcement.
