City of Wichita computers hit with ransomware attack | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware


The City of Wichita has experienced a ransomware attack. It has led to a shutdown of some of its systems to keep the malware from spreading. The city says certain files in its systems were locked without permission by an attacker who will give the city access for a price.

The shutdown could impact many parts of city operations. As of Sunday afternoon, city sites including the water bill payment website and other online city services weren’t available. On Monday morning the City’s main web portal at wichita.gov was unavailable to the public.
