Manchester-based St. Mary’s Bank, the nation’s oldest credit union, is alerting more than 115,000 of its current and former members of a recent security breach that may have exposed their personal information, including Social Security numbers and transaction records.

On July 12, St. Mary’s began mailing letters notifying some 115,775 New Hampshire residents of a data breach at the credit union, according to a filing with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office.

In the letter sent to members by St. Mary’s CEO Ron Covey, the credit union said that on May 26 it discovered malicious software (malware) on an individual employee workstation computer.

The credit union immediately called in a computer security consulting firm to analyze its entire computer system and isolate and eliminate the malware.
