Washington state transportation services partially restored after cyberattack

“The Washington Department of Transportation’s computer systems are partially back online after a security incident this week disrupted its website and mobile apps. “

“A disclaimer at the top of the department’s homepage reads, “Portions of the website and mobile app are unavailable at this time.” The system outages, which were first reported at 6 a.m. local time on Tuesday, disabled pages on the department’s website and left some real-time data feeds blank on mobile apps. “

“Abrudan said that the system outages were caused by a cybersecurity incident seemingly aimed at interrupting the flow of travel-related information. She said there was no indication at this time that any other systems were affected or that personal information was accessed. “
