Texas City Works to Restore Networks, Post-Ransomware Attack

Police Department Loses Images After Ransomware Infected City Systems

The city of Robstown is working to restore their networks after an unknown ransomware variant riddled their networks, effectively corrupting Robstown Police Department records. To date, the last four weeks of police camera footage, including pictures and videos have been encrypted.

The city is working with the FBI in an attempt to regain access to the encrypted images. However, unless the city has these images backed up, they will likely remain encrypted by the hackers. City officials have confirmed, they have no intention to pay the ransom demands, stating, “we do not negotiate with terrorists.”
