JOHNSTOWN − Dynamic Networks President Darren Richards told Johnstown City Council on Tuesday the Mount Vernon-based company’s computers were hacked, affecting its clients, including the city of Johnstown.

Richards said it appears the city’s police department is the only one that can’t access all its data. He said no ransom has been paid or will need to be paid.

Dynamic Networks is the city’s information technology company. Richards said it has 100 to 150 clients in central Ohio. He said the company restored about 60 servers in a couple days.

“I hate saying it, but one of our systems got hacked and, in turn, a lot of our clients got hacked,” Richards said. “The infected systems are no longer in use. We shut those down right away. We’re not seeing any personal information leaving.”
