IL: Bartlett Public Library recovered from ransomware attack

From the library’s home page:

The Bartlett Public Library District’s computer systems were disabled on Saturday, November 30, 2019 by a ransomware virus.

Ransomware encrypts data so that the owner loses access to all of their files and emails. No one’s private information was compromised.

The Library does not store sensitive information such as credit cards, social security numbers, and/or driver’s license numbers.

As of Thursday, December 12, all of our systems are up and functional. If you notice a problem with your account, please call Circulation at 630.837.2855.

Thank you for being patient as we worked through this challenging and unfortunate situation. We apologize for any inconvenience.
