Winnsboro State Bank & Trust Company (“Winnsboro”) is monitoring the reports of data breaches involving a security vulnerability with MOVEit Transfer, which has affected hundreds of organizations worldwide, including state and federal government agencies.  MOVEit Transfer is a software tool used to securely transfer files from one system to another.

Winnsboro was recently advised by two (2) third-party vendors that provide services to a number of Louisiana banks, including Winnsoboro, that they were impacted by cyberattacks which exploited the MOVEit Transfer vulnerability.  The impacted vendors are Financial Institution Service Corporation (“FISC”) and First National Bankers Bank (“FNBB”).  The breach affecting FISC occurred between May 30, 2023 and May 31, 2023 and the breach affecting FNBB occurred on May 27, 2023. No systems maintained by Winnsboro were breached. We are providing this information so everyone in our community can take steps to protect their personal information.

The breaches may have allowed unauthorized access to and/or acquisition of certain customer information.  While the information varies by customer, the information that may have been rendered accessible in the breaches, includes: name, address, date of birth, telephone number, Social Security number, employer identification number, driver’s license number, other government issued identification numbers, financial account information, and/or credit and/or debit card number.

Winnsboro has been assured that the third-party systems have now been secured and that FISC and FNBB each notified law enforcement and retained cybersecurity specialists to determine the impact of the cyber incidents.
