Vermont financial regulation website taken offline
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation has taken its public website down after the discovery of what it described as a potential cybersecurity vulnerability.
In a release sent Tuesday evening, the department said that after discussing the issue with experts from Vermont’s Agency of Digital Services the decision was made to take the website offline as a precaution while a full risk assessment is done.
The department says any risk to the public is minimal because the department does not post confidential or personally identifiable information.
The department did not give details about the vulnerability.
The department’s other operations are unaffected.
