Right -- right now we believe that it's a hacking group anonymous but the yen because they've come out over the weekend and sad that not only were -- the -- -- hacked into the county have been publishing some of the leaked information.

Sad that -- data was left un encrypted meaning it was just out there very easy to take very easy to decipher.
If that is the case this is a huge issue for Stratford we know that encrypting -- sort of the basic 101 that you need to do to keep -- that from being stolen.
