County Software Hijacked, Finances Held For Ransom

A computer virus hijacked Roosevelt County’s computer software Monday, March 16, and held county finances hostage for several days with a demand that ransom be paid online with Bitcoins.
The virus attacked accounting software and shut down the ability to conduct business for several county offices.
The county’s IT manager Cole Hanks explained that the county was not hacked. He said the problem was caused by a virus picked up at an unknown site on the internet.
Hanks said a ransom of two Bitcoins was demanded to decrypt the files.
Bitcoin is a digital currency that has gained popularity with some people in recent years. According to Nasdaq, one Bitcoin was valued at $248.03 Tuesday, March 24.
The ransom was not paid and Hanks has decrypted the files.
“This was one of the worst ones [computer viruses] I would say,” Hanks said.
“No personal information was hacked. It’s just we couldn’t use our files,” he said.
Sheriff Jason Frederick referred the matter to the FBI in Glasgow.
“It looks like our hacker is from overseas,” Frede-
rick said.
The sheriff’s office and county attorney were not affected.
