Two Ransomware Attacks Strike in Connecticut
Last week, we reported on Middleton School District, located in Connecticut becoming infected with ransomware. This led to only two of their six systems being partially operational. Now, a week later the Derby Police Department released they too have been a victim of ransomware. Although, there is no evidence suggesting the two were related as neither ransomware variants were disclosed. It also remains unclear if either victim paid the ransom demands.
At this time, Derby Police Department has reported their systems are back to fully operational. They also do not believe any information was breached due to the ransomware attack.
