- The infringement has been possible through phishing, so-called "phishing", where you have come across a login and password for a user account, says Västervik Municipality's IT Manager Roger Hassel in a press release.

The municipality has reported to the Data Inspectorate and a police report will be made.

- The affected system contains no sensitive data. The information contained in the system is information that is general and which we on the part of the municipality are obliged to disclose if someone requests it. Some information is also available directly on the municipality's website, says Roger Hassel.
