Jonathan Greig reports:

The police department in Camden County, New Jersey confirmed that it was hit with a ransomware attack last month and is still investigating the incident.

The county prosecutor’s office was also hit in March, but according to statements made to New Jersey 101.5, there was no connection between the attacks.  Police Spokesman Dan Keashen told New Jersey 101.5 that the two departments do not share servers or networks.

Ok, any *people* have access to both, though?  Any common third party vendor?  Let’s not be so quick to say unconnected, maybe?
