BATON ROUGE - A state webpage used to submit unemployment claims was taken down June 29 after the company that runs it was targeted in an apparent hack.

The Louisiana Workforce Commission said that afternoon that efforts to restore the page were ongoing. The state said the outage affects nearly 11,000 people currently filing continued claims for unemployment in Louisiana.

Up to 40 states with websites run by the same company, Geographic Solutions, were affected by the malware attack, but state officials said Louisiana's unemployment page was prioritized for restoration.

The website was back online as of July 5.
