The city of Atlanta is currently being targeted in a ransomware attack impacting several of its departments and crippling government websites that process payments and relay court information.
The attack first hit on Thursday morning, according to the City of Atlanta. In an email to Threatpost, an Atlanta government spokesperson said that there are no updates to share as of Friday morning.
The city, which is the ninth-largest metro area in the U.S., said on its Twitter account Thursday that it is facing outages on various internal and external customer-related applications, “including some that customers may use to pay bills or access court-related information.”
