According to sources, Douglas County Libraries (a Government organization in Colorado) was hit with a cyber attack. It was first reported on 2024-01-22.

Douglas County Libraries hacked by overseas criminal group

“It's been over a week since Douglas County Libraries were the victim of an international cyber-attack and they're still in negotiations with that criminal group. “

“The entire system, from the online catalog to placing holds and even checking out books in person wasn't working. “

“When the library's IT team investigated, they found a calling card left by hackers. "There was a note left on the server to contact the bandits doing this," said Pasicznyuk. “

“It's not clear how the hackers got into the system. Pasicznyuk says the library recently had a cybersecurity audit and received an A+ rating. Luckily, the library has cybersecurity insurance, and they're working with a cybersecurity firm to recover from the hack. “
