DENVER (KKTV) — A Colorado state-run website was offline Wednesday after an apparent cyberattack.
It is unclear whether authorities have identified an individual or group related to the incident, but the following was sent by the Governor’s Office of Information Technology:
“Today the colorado.gov The home page of the state web portal was taken offline due to a cyberattack claimed by a suspected anonymous foreign actor that targeted several state government departments and websites across the United States, according to reports. A temporary colorado.gov The web page is responsible for directing Coloradans to the most common online state services, including links to specific websites. All other Colorado State websites and essential state government services are online and available.
The Governor’s Office of Information Technology and the State Emergency Operations Center are actively working with state and federal partners to restore access to the colorado.gov Portal home page. Security measures are also taken to ensure that government websites and services are not affected.
At this time, there is no anticipated timeline for bringing the colorado.gov online homepage. Although the homepage is down, online access has not been compromised and services remain available.
