Idaho county pays ransom to release encrypted servers

“Bingham County ended up paying more than $3,000 in ransom after it was unable to fully recover from an attack on county servers.

The ransomware attack was initially discovered Feb. 15, when county dispatchers were unable to access systems crucial to emergency responders.

Information technology personnel were called in at 4 a.m. and quickly learned hackers had delivered malware to the county servers that encrypted the data and made the computer systems inaccessible to county employees.”
