Duke Energy third-party bill pay shut down due to security vulnerablities

Duke energy officials filed a request last Friday to increase base rates for customers in South Carolina.

Duke Energy says you will not be able to to pay your bill at third-party locations like groceries stores right now.

They say they have found security vulnerabilities in its system and more than 300,000 customers in the Carolinas could be affected.

If you need to pay your bill, you can still do it online at a Western Union location over the phone or by check.
