According to sources, City of Granbury (a Government organization in Texas) was hit with a cyber attack. It was first reported on 2023-08-12.

City of Granbury computer network hacked

“The city of Granbury’s computer network was hacked on July 30, prompting the city to hold an emergency meeting on Aug. 8 to discuss approval of a budget that would fund consulting servers to mitigate the impact of the attack. “

““The initial infection started from something being clicked that activated the malicious software. That software used that user’s credentials to traverse the network. Anywhere that user logged into previously automatically infected those machines because the hacker had the credentials. Because that user was logged into our net motion system, it allowed that to travel from the police department side to city side,” Director of IT Services for the City of Granbury and Patrol Officer, Chris Collins said during the meeting. “Immediately, I identified it as being something of malicious nature and disconnected those systems that the user had logged into.” “

“Collins and his staff further investigated the activity and after eight hours, the team was able to contain the activity. Monday and Tuesday of last week, systems that weren’t powered on, were powered on, which caused the same type of activity to occur but were contained. “
