Cyberattack on Washington County government was first detected last week

“The cyberattack that has crippled Washington County’s government and courthouse was first detected late last week as employees tried to prevent it from spreading before it spiraled out of control Wednesday and forced the county to shut down its computer network. “

“County officials were first alerted to possible malware within the government server Thursday night into Friday morning last week, and information technology workers tried to prevent it from spreading elsewhere in the network, according to county Commissioner Larry Maggi. “

“The issues continued over the weekend into Monday and Tuesday when it “became an issue” with growing concerns about whether the cyberattack could be contained. “

“The incident has left county government and courthouse employees without the ability to use their computers, although some tasks and duties were continuing as usual in a rudimentary fashion without technology. There is no timeline on when the computer network will be restored or when the county will be functioning normally. “
