(KSL News) -- Hackers broke into the State of Utah's computer network.

The unauthorized break-in occurred on computer systems containing information on state websites. Some were rendered in-operable for a time.

A state investigation is underway. The FBI is also involved.

So far , state leaders, don't believe any information or data was compromised.

Gov. Olene Walker : “Wait and see if they feel any of the files were compromised, and they have, we will do whatever is necessary, but at this point it does not look like that has happened."

State technology experts say Utah's computer systems are well protected from attacks. But, threats change daily, because hackers are always looking for vulnerable systems.
