New Jersey Based ADP Hacked, Only One Client Affected

New Jersey based payroll services company, Automatic Data Processing Inc. revealed yesterday that its network had been breached by hackers.

However, the company reassured all concerned parties by saying that not much damage was caused during the intrusion, and only one client was affected.

According to the company, the breach was discovered by its IT team during a routine monitoring of the systems, and that a client of Workforce, which the company acquired just recently, was the sole victim of the hack-attack.

However, ADP refrained from disclosing the identity of the unfortunate lone victim of the attack, who, it said, was informed about the breach in due course of time.

The company also said that the attack did not involve sensitive information such as payroll data.

Apparently, ADP is shying away from releasing the details of the attack, which according to it, is because of the fact that the matter is currently under scrutiny of law enforcement agencies.

The Roseland NJ company is assisting authorities in determining the possible causes of the breach.

But, as far as the findings of the initial investigation is concerned, ADP representative claimed that the company “believes that the impact of the incident is limited to a single client.’’
