- Hackers Hit D.C. police CC Camera network, city officials disclose
All your systems belong to us. The ransomware threat.
“Ransomware is a type of malware that cybersecurity experts and law enforcement officials say is proliferating. The malware gets into people’s computers, often because they click on a link or open an attachment in an email, then encrypts files or otherwise locks users out until they pay for the key. The D.C. hack appeared to be an effort to extort money and had no effect on inaugural security or criminal investigations, city officials said. The problem was discovered Jan. 12 when D.C. police noticed four camera sites were not functioning properly and contacted OCTO. The technology office discovered two forms of ransomware in the four recording devices and launched a citywide sweep of the network where they found more infected sites, said Vemulapalli.”
