Juliette Vignaud of 78Actu reports (translation):
The city of Houilles ( Yvelines ) has been facing a cyberattack since Saturday, January 30. The municipality announced it on its social networks: “The City of Houilles is the victim of a cyberattack which paralyzes the website and the municipal IT and digital services. It is not able to send e-mails or process paperless requests and procedures. The City is doing everything it can to stem the spread of this cyberattack . “
The malware is described as South Korean, and the city notes that there is a ransom note somewhere but they are not looking for it.
Other cities in France have also been attacked in recent weeks, including Alfortville. An Alfortville attack is listed on the Ranzy threat actors’ leak site, but without any proof or data as of the time of this posting.
