Message from City Hall Systems

09/20/2018 - Cyber Security / PCI Compliance

1.

City Hall Systems has received inquiries from some of our municipalities regarding a recent article on techcrunch.com (https://techcrunch.com/2018/09/19/hackers-have-planted-credit-card-stealing-malware-on-local-government-payment-sites) regarding vulnerabilities on local government payment sites and other general PCI-DSS compliance questions. Regarding the malware attacks described in the article, City Hall Systems has active policies and procedures in place to prevent such attacks. Regarding PCI-DSS compliance, the City Hall Systems payment site is PCI-DSS compliant as determined by a third party Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), SystemExperts Corporation.

2.

The article on techcrunch.com mentions “Any web server running an unpatched version of Oracle WebLogic would be vulnerable to exploitation, thus allowing an attacker to access the web server to manipulate Click2Gov configuration settings and upload malware”. City Hall Systems does not run "Oracle WebLogic" so this particular threat does not affect our network.

We understand that there are always external cyber security threats, and that any site could be a target. Our active policies and procedures that limit access to our systems include a detailed logging of third party activities that are monitored daily. All payment information (credit card numbers, expiration dates, etc.) is encrypted to the PCI council standards. Under PCI-DSS, City Hall Systems is a service provider and accordingly, abides by the “SAQ D Service Provider” requirements that can be found here (https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/document_library).
