The Minnesota Department of Resources is advising people who used credit cards at Tettegouche State Park on several dates in August to monitor their accounts after malware was found on park computers.

The DNR said in a Sept. 8 news release that state IT security specialists discovered the malicious software on Aug. 25 when they noticed a spike of unusual activity on the computers at the North Shore park. The state is conducting a forensic analysis to determine what happened.

The agency said it has no evidence that credit card numbers were accessed, but is advising those who visited the park between Aug. 22 and 25 to review their credit card accounts for suspicious activity. About 400 credit card transactions took place at the park during the period.

The attack could only affect people whose credit card transactions were processed on the park computers. The state park reservation system and other state IT systems were not affected.

The DNR says it cannot contact those who made the transactions because it is not able to access personal information from customer credit cards.
