City Attacked by Ransomware


Del Rio, TX - The City of Del Rio was attacked by ransomware earlier today, which led to servers at City Hall being disabled. 

The first step in addressing the issue, was for the City’s M.I.S. (Management Information Services) Department to isolate the ransomware which necessitated turning off the internet connection for all city departments and not allowing employees to log into the system. Due to this, transactions at City Hall are being done manually with paper. 

The second step the City took was to go to the FBI to report the ransomware, after which the City was referred to the Secret Service. 

The City is diligently working on finding the best solution to resolve this situation and restore the system. We ask the public to be patient with us as we may be slower in processing requests at this time. 

It is uncertain whether anyone’s personal data has been compromised. This is uncertain as to both employee data and customer.
