Florida Town Avoids Paying Ransom After Hackers Attacked Network

Florida Town of Jupiter Suffers Ransomware Attack

The Town of Jupiter has been able to restore their networks, and gain full functionality after an unknown ransomware variant encrypted their internal files earlier this month.  The exact ransom demand remains unknown, but town officials did state the ransom payment was not made.  Instead, IT professionals were able to restore the encrypted files, remove the malware, and bring all affected systems back online.

At this time, it does not appear any personal data of town citizens or employees was leaked as a result of the cyber attack.
