Officials have confirmed that the cyber criminals who targeted the county are after money.

“We do have evidence that suggests this was the result of a ransomware incident caused by financially motivated actors,” said Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts.

The attack has caused technology trouble in the county government. Chairman Pitts says some critical operations remain down, including justice and property tax systems, two thirds of phone lines and the water department cannot accept payments. The Fulton County Jail is also experiencing issues.

Fulton County officials say they are going to figure out what exactly happened and will work to strengthen their IT system.
