PA State Senate Ransomware Attack
Pennsylvania senators were unable to access their computer networks and data after ransomware took over the Pennsylvania Senate’s computer systems. According to 10 TV, the attack hasn’t affected the state’s networks, which are separate from the Senate’s computers.
The ransomware variant that successfully infiltrated the Senate’s system is not being disclosed, nor is the ransom demand. At this time, it is unclear if the office intends to pay the ransom demands to regain access to their computers and data, or if they have adequate backup files.
