Thousands of credit card numbers reported stolen from state Web site


Thousands of credit card numbers were stolen from a state government Web site that allows residents to register their cars and buy state permits, authorities said Friday.

The private company that runs RI.gov told the state this week that 4,118 credit card numbers had probably been taken, a state official said. All online transactions were suspended Friday until any possible security problems could be fixed, and the state planned to notify cardholders of the breach, said Beverly Najarian, director of the Department of Administration.
