OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma agency that protects investors from fraud is investigating whether its data was breached after a cybersecurity research team found that a computer server had left millions of files unsecured.

Oklahoma Department of Securities Administrator Irving Faught said Thursday a forensic team is trying to determine the type and number of files that may have been exposed and to whom.

The UpGuard Data Breach Research team says millions of files could have been accessed by virtually anyone.
