Jesse Moya has an update on the Taos Municipal Schools District ransomware incident that occurred on February 28. On March 22, we had reported that three weeks later, the district was still working on recovering from the attack.
As of March 28, they have continued to make progress, but they have not totally restored everything yet and have no prediction as to when they might get to that point.
If staff have spent 20-hour days working on this for more than one month, what has this incident — and their decision not to pay the $5,000 decryption fee cost them? Was this a good decision or a poor one? I can see arguments both ways. What do YOU think?
