An electronic attack on the computer systems used by the East Windsor municipal building is under investigation by a cybersecurity firm and continues to impact some township operations.

In a statement, Township Manager Jim Brady said "suspicious activity" was first discovered on March 7. The system was taken offline and a cybersecurity company is working with township officials to restore their operations.

"We are diligently working to regain full operational status," Brady said. "We are dedicating significant internal resources to this process."

Brady did not disclose the extent of the breach or what specific operations were affected. He told The Trentonian it was not known if the attack was a ransomware attack. Brady also did not disclose if any personal information was accessed in the attack.
