Personal information on 20 Commerce Bank customers was accessed during 
what the bank is describing as "an attempted hacking" on one of its 
computer systems. The information was in a database that included 3,000 
customers.

Jenny Stanley, regional marketing manager, said the database contained 
personal information such as names, addresses, Social Security numbers, 
mothers maiden names, phone numbers and, in a few instances, Commerce 
Bank checking or savings account numbers. She said some of the 20 
customers live in Mid-Missouri but declined to be more specific.

Stanley said Commerces security team discovered the attack a little more 
than a week ago, shut it down immediately and called the FBI, which is 
investigating the incident.

Letters notifying the affected customers of the breach were mailed 
Saturday, Stanley said. Commerce is providing free credit monitoring 
service to affected customers for 24 months, she said. Customers can 
call (877) 279-4046 for more information.

In a news release, Commerce said it is "carefully and actively 
monitoring all accounts for fraudulent activity."
