IT hack still affecting COTA wi-fi, real time transit info | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

Central Ohio Transit Authority riders still don’t have Wi-Fi access on buses, and can’t track real-time transit information online or through the transit agency’s app three weeks after its IT system was hacked.

When COTA officials learned on Dec. 12 that someone had hacked the system, they took all IT systems offline.

COTA spokesman Jeff Pullin said there is no timetable as to when COTA will restore Wi-Fi and the real-time service online or at its bus stop kiosks, where riders can find out when their buses are due to arrive. Riders also can’t plan trips online yet either.

“The important thing is the system still running on schedule,” Pullin said.

Pullin said the hack remains under investigation.

Josh Lapp, who chairs Transit Columbus, an advocacy group, said COTA leadership was not as forthcoming as it needed to be when the system’s IT system was hacked.
