Update on Cullman County Revenue Office malware attack

“The Cullman County Revenue Office over the Christmas weekend was the victim of a malware attack, forcing a temporary shutdown of its online payment portal, causing some residents to lapse on property taxes, vehicle registrations and more.“

“The Revenue Office has extended a grace period until Jan. 8, allowing those individuals who were inconvenienced by the outage to pay for those fees and services without the financial penalty that would typically apply. As of Dec. 29, full payment functionality was restored to the Cullman County Revenue Office website.“

“While the information that has been gathered doesn’t give any clues as to who was responsible for the malware attack, or what information was taken, the Revenue Office reported the server does include public property records – but personal information was redacted before those documents were uploaded to the server“
