Ransomware Attack Takes Down 10,000 Government Computers in Baltimore

About 10,000 city government computers in Baltimore remain frozen two weeks after a disruptive cyberattack that has delayed home sales and halted water bills. The city was hit May 7 by hackers demanding an undisclosed sum to unlock computers. The city hasn’t paid, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the incident. Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young has warned it could take months to recover some systems.
