S.F. Transportation Agency Suffers Cyber Attack

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency said it had contained a cyber attack, which local media reported had crippled its ticketing systems and forced it to offer free service to some customers during the Thanksgiving weekend. The agency, known widely as Muni, said it was the victim of a ransomware attack that disrupted some internal computer systems, including email, but had no impact on safe operation of its transit services.
