In the news today, the city of Atlanta was held hostage for five days by a ransomware attack. It has been described as “one of the most sustained and consequential cyber attacks against a major American city.” Many parts of the city government were unable to function and had to revert to using paper and ink for its work. The attackers demanded $51,000 to return use of the computer systems and it is unclear when the systems will be fully restored.
