Ransomware attack strikes District Attorney offices across New Mexico

“The New Mexico Administrative Office of the District Attorneys was still trying to get its two main computer servers working again Thursday after a ransomware attack locked prosecutors across the state out of their files Wednesday morning. “

“Valdez said the two computer servers affected by the attack are in Albuquerque but serve offices in the 13 judicial districts in New Mexico. The Santa Fe-based server near his office has not been affected, he added. “

“Work at the First Judicial District Attorney's Office, which serves Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Los Alamos counties, was hindered by the attack, a spokesman confirmed. “

“"As such, we have no access to any files/drives/folders. Nothing," she wrote. "[Administrative Office of the District Attorneys] is attempting to fix the situation but it appears that malware and/or ransomware has attacked the systems and this may take the rest of the week," Carmack-Altwies added. “
