Washington State city allegedly hit by ransomware

Jurgita Lapienytė reports:

Lakewood is a city in Pierce County, Washington, with a population of over 63,000. BlackCat claimed it had breached Lakewood City Council and stolen over 250GB worth of data.

“Because of their misunderstanding and inability to negotiate, we share information with you,” BlackCat said and shared a link to download 252GB of documents.

Cybernews has not reviewed the files. We contacted the City Council to learn more about the alleged incident. We will update the article as soon as we know more.
