North Carolina City Offices Crippled by Robbinhood
The City of Greenville, North Carolina, was struck with ransomware on April 10, 2019. The ransomware variant, called Robbinhood, left the city with no choice but to shutdown their networks. Fortunately, even with their networks offline, public safety systems remained in tact.
The extent of the damage due to the cyber attack remains unknown. However, city officials
No one has confirmed the ransom demands, or if the City of Greenville intends of pay the demands in an attempt to restore their networks.
This is far from the first ransomware attack on a public municipality. In just the last few weeks the City of Albany in New York, and Michigan’s Genesee County were also infected with ransomware.
