Rocky Mount hit by ransomware, investigating and trying to recover

Add Rocky Mount, North Carolina to the list of governments hit by ransomware.  As of Aug. 28, they didn’t seem to yet know too much, as WITN reported:

Rocky Mount leaders are trying to get the city’s network back on track after facing a cyber attack. The city is in the process of confirming what impact the attack may have had on information on the network.

Leaders say they know Rocky Mount was the victim of a cyber attack that involved the encryption of certain city systems, and say the investigation will determine if personal information was stolen.
