Saint John Development Corporation finds cyber attack damage

Rachel Cave reports:

The Saint John Development Corporation says it’s working to restore an annual report that it lost to a cyber attack in early 2015.

“We lost a lot of our data,” said General Manager Kent MacIntyre. “We had some [Saint John] city IT people working with us to try to recover that but in the end, it wasn’t recovered.”

According to MacIntyre, sensitive information wasn’t compromised because it was being stored on city servers at the time.

He said the ransomware infected only the office laptops and he doesn’t know why they were hit at all.
