The City Hall of Del Rio, Texas was hit by a ransomware attack on Thursday, which led to multiple computers on the network being turned off and disconnected from the Internet to contain and analyze the malware.

Victoria Vargas Public Relations Manager for Del Rio’s City Hall told BleepingComputer that around 30 to 45 computers were turned off after detecting the attack during the morning of January 10 and that the ransom note contained a phone number to be used to contact the attackers for instructions on how to pay the ransom.
