Fr: Savoie: Bourg-Saint-Maurice town hall is the target of a cyber-attack

A cyber-attack on the servers of the city of Bourg-Saint-Maurice took place this past weekend. Servers currently affected are those of tourism, Haute Tarentaise, and Séez.  Le Dauphiné reports that  the cybersecurity firm assisting with the investigation and recovery has found no theft of personal data (at least so far), but everything is encrypted.

Although the report doesn’t say “ransomware,” from the fact that everything is encrypted, this is likely a ransomware incident.

Everything is expected to return to normal in a few more weeks, and only online services are suspended.

Read more on Le Dauphiné. This post will be updated if more information becomes available.
